Each clinic features a total of 35 exam and treatment rooms, three procedure rooms and digital radiology for primary care and urgent care services. The facilities also feature three blood draw rooms with services provided by Regional Medical Laboratory. Extended urgent care hours will allow patients greater access to care. The primary care clinics have space for nine providers and offer services to advance the primary care experience including behavioral therapists and licensed care managers. A large conference room at each facility will host education and training on a variety of health topics for the community, patients and staff. Telehealth pods will be available for provider teleconferencing and for providing telemedicine services to patients.
Primary care hours for both locations will be Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Urgent care hours for both locations will be Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and Saturday-Sunday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Patients may schedule appointments online for both primary care and urgent care by visiting www.getstjohncare.org.
