Urgent Care Center to be open Christmas and New Year's holidays

Urgent Care Center October 2009

KDMC's Urgent Care Center will be open during the Christmas and New Year's holidays to accommodate patients who may need minor medical care.

The center's Christmas and New Year's hours are:

  • Christmas Eve, Thursday, Dec. 24: 4 p.m. to midnight
  • Christmas Day, Friday, Dec. 25: 6 to 10 p.m.
  • New Year's Eve, Thursday, Dec. 31: 4 p.m. to midnight
  • New Year's Day, Friday, Jan. 1: 4 p.m. to midnight

The Urgent Care Center is located at 2245 Winchester Avenue, in downtown Ashland. The center accepts walk-in patients only.

The center is designed for adult and pediatric patients with illnesses and injuries that cannot wait for a traditional physician appointment, but do not require the services of a hospital emergency department. The center's normal operating hours are 4 p.m. to midnight weekdays, and noon to midnight Saturdays and Sundays.

The 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 such as quick strep tests, rapid flu tests, tetanus shots, and blood work. Breathing treatments, high blood pressure stabilization, ear drainage, and IV therapy also are provided.
