CHI St. Alexius Health opened its third urgent care clinic. It offers same-day treatment for patients in need of immediate and non-emergent medical care.
Patients walk in and out in about 45 minutes or less. Health professionals say the third clinic reaches more people in Lincoln and students at the University of Mary.
"Before we opened these urgent care clinics, we did a little bit of research and we determined that actually a community our size can really support more walk-in clinics and that it is a needed thing in our community to have access to more convenient walk-in care. So, I think this is going to be a great thing for the community to have more options," said Andrea Malucky/Nurse Practitioner.
The clinic is on the corner of Main and 9th Street. It is open every day from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m.
