O’FALLON, Ill. – MedExpress Urgent Care will open its newest Illinois center on Dec. 21 at 1711 West Highway 50, O’Fallon.
The center is offering free flu shots to patients ages 9 and up from Dec. 21 to Jan. 3, excluding Dec. 25 as all MedExpress centers will be closed for the holiday.
O’Fallon will be the sixth MedExpress location in Illinois. Last month, the company opened a location in Normal, and has plans to open additional centers in 2017, including one in Peoria.
The new center will offer walk-in treatment for everyday illness and injury, including more advanced offerings such as on-site X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches and treatment for broken bones, sprains and strains. MedExpress centers are open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with no appointments necessary, and also offer basic wellness and prevention services such as physicals, immunizations and tobacco cessation counseling. Local employers can utilize MedExpress for employer health services such as occupational medicine, employee injury care, workers’ compensation and pre-employment screenings and physicals.
MedExpress centers accept all major insurances and offer affordable pricing for those without insurance. Centers are staffed by a full medical team, which includes customer service representatives, nurses, providers and radiologic technologists. As a neighborhood medical center and community health care partner, MedExpress can help refer patients, when necessary, within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physicians and hospitals.
