Mercy to Consolidate Walk-in Clinic Services in Washington

August 15, 2013


Mercy Convenient Care is located at 901 Patients First Drive

in Washington. It's open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily.   

Washington, Mo. – Mercy is responding to patients who have requested a simpler, less expensive option in a walk-in clinic in Washington.

Starting Sept. 1, Mercy’s dual Urgent Care/Convenient Care clinic at Mercy Medical Building South is converting to all Convenient Care.  They will have access to the same services they are accustomed to, flexible hours, walk-in convenience and lower costs.

"We have heard our patients clearly request a less expensive option for their heath care needs and have responded with this change," said David Chalk, MD, president of Mercy Clinic. "By offering a Convenient Care clinic, patients’ co-payments equal that of an office visit with their primary care physicians.”

The facility will remain staffed by physicians and nurse practitioners who work in collaboration with other Mercy physicians and services. Patients receive care for a variety of medical conditions.

Mercy offers an Urgent Care clinic at 20 Legends Parkway in Eureka. Both the Convenient Care in Washington and the Urgent Care in Eureka offer fast, non-emergent care for simple cuts, puncture wounds, minor burns and broken bones, animal and insect bites, sprains, stitches, flu, strep, mono, and other common health concerns. X-rays are available. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Both sites are closed on major holidays.

For life-threatening injuries and illnesses, people should call 911 and go to the nearest emergency department. Symptoms of serious health issues include:

  • Heart attack symptoms including chest pain or pressure, pain in shoulders, arms, back or jaw, shortness of breath, nausea, severe fatigue or anxiety, severe abdominal pain, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath. 
  • Stroke symptoms including sudden dizziness, weakness or loss of coordination or balance, sudden blurred vision, numbness in the face, arm or leg, sudden, severe headache.
  • Deep cuts or bleeding that won't stop
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Severe burns
