ST. LOUIS, Mo. – With advantages like easy-to-use online check-in and pre-registration, a real-time wait clock, mobile x-ray and large exam rooms, the new Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care locations in St. Louis are designed to make health care effortless and convenient.
Following a blessing and ribbon cutting ceremony today, the first three Mercy-GoHealth sites open to patients this month. The Kirkwood location opens June 19 in Kirkwood Square at 10700 Manchester Road. The second and third locations - at 11445 Olive Boulevard, near the intersection of Olive Boulevard and Craig Road in Creve Coeur and 409 Lafayette Center in Manchester – will open by the end of June. All centers will be open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care treats adults and children six months and older with non-life threatening illnesses and injuries such as colds, flu, fever, asthma, allergies, emphysema, minor skin lacerations, cuts, burns, urinary tract infections, sports injuries, fractures, sprains and strains. Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care accepts most commercial insurance plans.
“Based on Mercy’s many years of service in the St. Louis area, we know that patients want care close to home and available at times that are convenient for them. Mercy’s partnership with GoHealth is a response to those needs,” said Jeff Johnston, president of Mercy’s eastern Missouri region. “Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care brings a new type of urgent care experience to our patients, with expanded access to convenient and high quality care.”
Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care patients will experience visits that on average last less than an hour and will cost substantially less than a trip to the emergency room. The open floor layout of Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers enables caregivers to directly engage with patients, and the spacious exam rooms can accommodate entire families. Every center is equipped with on-site X-ray and laboratory services for patient convenience, enabling rapid results.
