From St James Hospital:
Officials at St. James Hospital are pleased to announce convenient summer hours for its Urgent Care center at 7309 Seneca Rd., Suite 103. Starting Monday, June 15, the service will be open 8am – 6pm, seven days a week.
“We realize people are busy during the summer, and having the ability to get their care earlier in the day is a great convenience,” said Bryan O’Donovan, president and CEO.
St. James Urgent Care provides non-emergency services to children and adults. No appointment is needed.
“Although patients should always seek care first from their primary care provider, Urgent Care is convenient and ideal should you or your family member need to be seen immediately or after hours,” said O’Donovan. “If you have more serious symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, or serious bleeding you should go directly to the hospital emergency department.”
Conditions that are treated at Urgent Care include but are not limited to:
• Coughs, colds and earaches
• Flu symptoms
• Minor lacerations and burns
• Urinary tract infections
• Rashes and skin conditions
• Sports injuries
• Animal and insect bites
• Fractures, strains and sprains
Digital X-ray and labs services are available onsite. The center also offers school and sports physicals.
“Anyone who comes to Urgent Care can be assured that all the safety precautions are in place,” said O’Donovan. “These include universal masking, social distancing in the waiting room, and use of personal protective equipment. As an added precaution we encourage people to call ahead if possible to discuss their symptoms (385-3800), to help space out the patient flow and expedite their visit.”
The new Urgent Care hours will be in effect until the end of summer. In addition, the walk-in x-ray services 7309 Seneca Rd., Suite 103 will have summer hours of 8am – 6pm, seven days a week. For more information call (607) 385-3800 or visit StJames.urmc.edu.
