Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care will open a new state-of-the-art urgent care center in Fayetteville on Monday, March 4, at 3391 N. College Ave., No. 1, further expanding its footprint in Arkansas.
This will be the third center in the state, following center openings in Rogers and Springdale. GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the country’s largest and fastest growing urgent care companies, and Mercy, one of the most innovative health systems in the U.S., have established 16 more urgent care centers in St. Louis and Springfield, Missouri, and Oklahoma in just the past 10 months.
“We’re pleased with the success of this partnership with GoHealth because it’s helping us fulfill our mission to meet patients where they are with convenient, compassionate and quality care,” said Dr. Steve Goss, president of Mercy Clinic.
After a blessing and ribbon-cutting at 2 p.m. Thursday, the Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care center in Fayetteville off U.S. 71 Business south of Millsap Road, will open its doors four days later to patients in need. The new, innovative center offers simple online check-in and pre-registration access, as well as walk-in availability, spacious rooms, onsite test and lab capabilities, and mobile X-ray.
Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers welcome patients year-round, 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. The centers treat adults and children 6 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, fractures, sprains and strains. Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care accepts most commercial insurance plans.
“We are thrilled to expand our Northwest Arkansas presence and to enter the Fayetteville market with Mercy,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care. “This community deserves effortless access to high-quality, consumer-focused care that is fully integrated into the broader health care continuum.”
Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care is on track to launch more than 30 urgent care centers across Mercy’s service area by year-end. Information about each existing location, as well as future locations, can be found at www.gohealthuc.com/Mercy.
