Caregivers at Conemaugh Health System’s newest MedWELL Urgent Care Center will begin seeing patients Monday, May 3.
Located at Conemaugh Ebensburg, 236 Jamesway Road in the Jamesway Plaza, the goal of MedWELL is to serve as a quick, convenient healthcare option. It will be open to walk-in patients seven days a week, Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., with limited laboratory and imaging services also available on-site.
Physicians and other medical personnel, including physician assistants and nurse practitioners, will staff the new urgent care center.
“We want to stress that the MedWELL is not meant to replace the relationship between a patient and their primary care physician, which is extremely important,” says Dr. David Carlson, Chief Medical Officer of the Conemaugh Health System. “We realize, however, that there are times that people need medical attention when their physician’s office is closed, and the emergency room is the only option. MedWELL is designed to provide an alternative for care when nonemergent situations arise and the primary care physician is unavailable.”
Conemaugh Health System’s first MedWELL location on Scalp Avenue in Johnstown has had more than 20,000 patient visits since opening its doors in September 2008.
When should patients visit MedWELL? Below is a list of some of the conditions that can be treated by the MedWELL team:
- Common illnesses and colds
- Sprains and strains
- Minor cuts or injuries
- Skin and eye irritations
