- URGENT CARE EXPANDS HOURS TO SATURDAY
Media — Since its opening on September 10th 2007, Premier’s Orthopaedic Urgent Care has seen a growing demand for its hassle free, 'no appointment necessary' walk-in Orthopaedic clinic. In order to meet this demand and requests for Saturday hours from many patients and referring physicians, Premier expanded its regular Monday-Friday 3:30-7:30 hours to include Saturday from 10am-2pm. Urgent Care opened its doors on Saturday starting April 4th 2009. The mission of the Urgent Care is to provide prompt, quality orthopaedic care to patients without the inconvenience of waiting long hours in the emergency room. Patients also don't have an exorbitant co-pay like in the emergency room and they get treated in a comfortable outpatient setting. Dr. Joseph Stellabotte, who supervises the clinic says, “I’m happy to see primary doctors and local families taking advantage of the convenience, availability of quick care and expertise that the Urgent Care offers. Its nice to see that we are making a positive impact on the community.”
