Urgent care clinic to be opened in Spartanburg

February 8, 2013 by  

It has been recently announced by the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System that it will be opening in early spring an Immediate Care Center on the east side of Spartanburg.

The medical center will be providing services on a walk-in basis with hours starting early in the morning and going into late in the evening. Unlike other urgent care centers that serve as an emergency health clinic, patients can use the clinic as their primary medical home.

A variety of injuries and illnesses will be treated at the clinic by board-certified physicians and support staff. Some of these ailments include cuts and lacerations, fractures and sprains, injuries to the eyes, burns and rashes, animal and insect bites, cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, and ear infections. There will also be a community education room for interactive sessions on care of the heart, diabetes, nutrition, and other topics.

No doubt flyer printing and poster printing are being used by Spartanburg Regional to make those on the east side aware of this new facility, so that they can find urgent care seven days a week when they need it without an appointment.

The Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System provides care and services in from birth to hospice in Union, Cherokee, and Spartanburg counties in South Carolina, as well as Rutherford and Polk counties in North Carolina. Some of its services include home health, pediatrics, imaging services, sports medicine and rehabilitation, and occupational health, as well as outpatient surgery and emergency services.
