CareNow® Urgent Care announces the opening of a new clinic 6930 Mission Rd. in Prairie Village, Kan. Part of HCA Healthcare, one of the nation’s largest providers of healthcare services, CareNow operates more than 200 urgent care locations across the country. CareNow is also a part of HCA Midwest Health, the Kansas City area’s largest healthcare provider.
“Like many communities in the area, Prairie Village is experiencing tremendous growth and increasingly people want to access healthcare services closer to where they live, work and play,” says HCA Midwest Health President Keith Zimmerman. “The addition of this new urgent care clinic will complement our already robust healthcare network, and help us provide more convenient access to high-quality, compassionate healthcare for our patients. As a part of this commitment, we look forward to the addition of two medical practices joining the CareNow location – Town Plaza Family Health and Town Plaza Women’s Health in early 2023.”
CareNow Urgent Care clinics offer quick care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, such as sprains and strains, minor burns, coughs, sore throats and flu-like symptoms — as well as physicals, vaccinations, general diagnostics and check-ups. The clinics also provide occupational medicine services to local employers, including examinations and treatment of injured workers in worker’s compensation cases, pre-employment screenings and drug tests. CareNow also provides flu shots, just in time for the flu season.
“We are pleased to be a part of the fabric of the Prairie Village community,” says CareNow Urgent Care Medical Director Mary Devers, MD. “Like our 10 CareNow Urgent Care locations throughout the region, the Prairie Village clinic will provide our patients expanded parking, increased clinical space and allow CareNow physicians and staff to provide an enhanced patient experience. CareNow treats non-emergent medical problems that can develop unexpectedly and require immediate attention, complementing services provided by primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms. Whether it’s a minor injury or an illness, patients want immediate, convenient care and we designed the clinic with this in mind.”
CareNow services include family medicine, on-site lab work and X-rays, occupational medicine, physical exams, flu shots, sports physicals and COVID testing. With Virtual Care, patients can see a highly qualified provider from the safety and convenience of their home. Walk-ins are welcome and patients can save time by using Web Check-In® at CareNow.com to wait at home or anywhere until it’s time to see their provider.
Additional CareNow Urgent Care locations in the Kansas City area include Belton, Blue Springs, Independence, Lee’s Summit, Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park, Corbin Park, Raytown, and State Line Road.
CareNow urgent care locations are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, visit CareNow.com.
