KDMC to Open Urgent Care Center in Downtown Ashland

Urgent Care Night SmallKing's Daughters Medical Center is opening a new Urgent Care Center in downtown Ashland beginning Wednesday, August 19. The center is located at 2245 Winchester Ave., and will be open weekdays 4 p.m. to midnight, and weekends noon to midnight. Appointments are not necessary and walk-ins are the only type of patients accepted.

King’s Daughters Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the state, seeing more than 75,000 patients annually. The goal of the Urgent Care Center is to offer patients an alternative to the Emergency Department. Urgent Care is good for illnesses and injuries for adults and children that cannot wait for a traditional physician appointment, but do not require the services of a hospital emergency department. The Urgent Care Center also is conveniently located, will be less expensive than a traditional Emergency Department visit, and have shorter wait times.

The center will be staffed with a highly qualified team of licensed physicians, nurse practitioners, and other healthcare team members.

Our Urgent Care Center differs from a typical physician’s office in that it has procedure rooms for stitching lacerations and splinting bone fractures, a radiology department for X-ray services and a laboratory for on-site lab tests like quick strep tests, rapid flu tests, tetanus shots, and blood work. We also provide breathing treatments, high blood pressure stabilization, ear drainage, and IV therapy.

  • Cold or flu symptoms
