Mercy will own and operate the urgent care facility located at 1624 S. National in Fort Scott effective October 3.
“Mercy will continue to provide our community this access point for urgent care services that is easy, convenient and customer-service oriented,” said Annamarie Holmes, Mercy Clinic Director. “We will also continue to provide occupational health services for local employers at the new location.”
Tiffany George, ARNP-C and Janice Boge, ARNP-C, will treat patients at the new location. Mercy has recently hired two additional co-workers to support the clinic: Meghan Woodrum, Radiology Technician/ Phlebotomist/Medical Assistant and Whendi Martin, Receptionist/Registration.
Hours at the additional Mercy Urgent Care location on National Avenue will be Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. Mercy will provide the same quick walk in services the community has been accustom to receiving from Dr. Cosens.
Mercy has installed the EPIC electronic health record (EHR) to support the “one patient one record approach. Mercy’s powerful EHR allows providers to practice safer medicine.
Mercy patients also have the ability to manage their health online via MyMercy, a secure online portal that enables patients to connect with their provider via email, view test results, renew prescriptions, schedule appointments and pay bills online.
Mercy’s current Urgent Care, located inside the hospital near the Emergency Department, will remain open and operating hours will remain the same: Monday-Friday 3:30 -11 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.
