The Willow Valley/ Urgent Care Clinic’s opening on evenings and Saturdays starting April 15 will mean an added health care option for the community.
“It’s going to be such a fantastic deal for the community,” said Nichole D. Noyes, physician office and clinic manager. The clinic is housed in remodeled space that formerly housed the offices of Dr. Lynn Eskelson and Dr. Mark Gibby at 47 No. 100 East, across the street from Franklin County Medical Center in Preston.
Hours will be 5 to 8 p.m. weekdays and Saturdays, 9 a.m. to noon.
“Right now, the doctor’s offices are open only until 5 p.m.,” she said. “For working moms and dads it can be difficult for them to get in during those hours. On Fridays the schools are closed so everybody schedules appointments and tries to get in that day and so it’s difficult.”
Urgent care will offer many of the same services as emergency care across the street, Noyes said.
“Each case will be triaged to determine the level of care and whether or not a patient needs to go the emergency room. Urgent care is designed for needs such as fractures, lacerations, urinary tract infections and strep throat, for example.”
