Murray Medical Associates will open a walk-in clinic in the Medical Arts Building - Suite 178 West on August 26. The clinic will provide access to care for area residents in need of same-day health-care service.
As many as half the people who come to Murray-Calloway County Hospital's emergency department on a daily basis could be appropriately cared for by providers within a walk-in clinic.
The clinic will be open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.; and Sunday, noon - 4 p.m.
It will offer an alternative to urgent or emergency care for health concerns that are not life-threatening but which need to be addressed the same day.
In addition to the primary care services offered by a Murray Medical Associates provider, the clinic will also have laboratory and diagnostic services on-site.
