The new year brought a new name for HSHS St. Elizabeth’s UrgiCare. To better reflect the type of care provided, the walk-in service has been renamed HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital Convenient Care and it is now a provider-based outpatient department of the hospital.
The location and hours of operation remain the same.
“Convenient Care is a great option for our always-on-the-go patients and families,” said Sara Fishbein, BSN, RN, assistant manager of HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Convenient Care. “We are here for those who need to be seen after normal physician office hours or on a weekend for those minor illnesses that need immediate treatment but aren’t serious enough to go to the ER.”
HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital Convenient Care is located within the O’Fallon Medical Building at 1512 N. Green Mount Road in O’Fallon and is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Patients can walk-in without an appointment to receive care for minor illnesses, sprains and strains and minor lacerations. Patients may also reserve their spot in line, see current wait times and receive text message notifications to help them arrive shortly before their appointment with the SaveMySpot online scheduling tool available at https://www.hshs.org/StElizabeths/Services/Convenient-Care.
