MedExpress Urgent Care announces the opening of three new convenient care centers in Northwest Arkansas, beginning with a new location in Springdale on July 9.
The Fayetteville and Bentonville centers will open on July 16 and August 27, respectively. The Springdale and Fayetteville centers will offer free sports physicals as a welcoming gift to the community through July 31.
The new centers will offer walk-in treatment for everyday illness and injury, including more advanced offerings such as X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches and treatment for broken bones, sprains and strains. The centers will also offer a wide array of wellness and prevention services to help patients maintain and monitor their overall health.
“MedExpress is excited to expand our services into Northwest Arkansas,” said Paul LeGue, MedExpress Area Manager for Arkansas. “Arkansas just seemed like a great fit for MedExpress. Our urgent care services can help Arkansas patients when there’s an unexpected illness or injury, and our wellness services such as general and sport physicals, immunizations and tobacco cessation programs can help patients to protect their individual health and address health risks that exist within the community.”
MedExpress offers an option to patients who may not be able to immediately see their primary care physicians or who don’t need true emergency treatment.
The clinics are staffed by a doctor and a full medical team and are open 12 hours daily including weekends. There is no appointment necessary.
“MedExpress plays an important role in the health care of the community by providing needed services in a convenient and timely manner,” said LeGue. “We also take it a step further by working to coordinate care with other area health care providers such as primary care physicians, specialists and area hospitals to ensure Arkansas patients receive the most appropriate follow-up care when needed.”
MedExpress is based in West Virginia and operates clinics in 10 states. These are the company's first three clinics in Arkansas.
