ST. LOUIS – A new and convenient combination for on-demand care needs and filling prescriptions is now available in Lake St. Louis with the opening of a Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care and a Mercy Pharmacy Dierbergs in the same retail plaza. Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care added a location at 6460 Ronald Reagan Drive in the Shoppes of Hawk Ridge in Lake St. Louis, where Mercy Pharmacy Dierbergs opened in November 2021. With this expansion, Mercy-GoHealth increases its total number of centers serving the metro area to 20, and Mercy now offers 35 retail pharmacies in the St. Louis region and 49 across Mercy’s four states.
This Mercy-Go Health opening provides even greater access to the St. Charles County community adding a sixth center to locations in O’Fallon, Wentzville, Cottleville, St. Peters and St. Charles. When choosing locations for its services, Mercy-Go Health is focused on making care highly accessible for patients. There are multiple retail plazas in the metro area with a Mercy Pharmacy Dierbergs and Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care steps apart.
“The one-stop shop approach has proven valuable to our patients,” said Ajay Pathak, Mercy senior vice president and chief strategic ventures officer. "We know our patients want convenience when it comes to health care and having these two vital services available in one new retail plaza makes it simple. When patients leave a Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care with a prescription, they can walk next door to Mercy Pharmacy Dierbergs to pick it up all while taking care of their shopping needs.”
As a leading provider of on-demand care services in the St. Louis metro area, Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care supports Mercy's reputation of high-quality, compassionate care that helps patients be well in mind, body and spirit with industry-leading patient satisfaction ratings, customer-focused technology and award-winning center design.
"Convenient, high-quality care that is seamlessly connected to Mercy’s primary and specialty care providers is key to supporting the health and wellness of our community,” said Sherry Buebendorf, regional president for Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care. "We have served the St. Louis region for three years and are proud to continue our commitment of delivering accessible care to the communities we serve. This opening could not come at a better time, when the need for on-demand care is so significant in this region."
Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers provide care for non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries, on-site X-ray services and COVID-19 evaluation and testing. Patients have access to quality care quickly and effortlessly with the options to walk in any center or go online to check wait times, save a spot online and pre-register. Patients can also connect with a local Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care provider remotely through a virtual visit, which can be done conveniently via a mobile device, computer or tablet. The new Lake St. Louis center is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and weekends 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
