MedExpress Urgent Care opened an urgent-care center today at 3407 N. Fifth Street Highway, Muhlenberg Township.
The office, open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., employs 30.
Dr. Frank Alderman, chief executive of the Morgantown, W.Va.-based company, said the office provides prompt care for episodic illnesses or injuries that are not perceived to be life-threatening.
“Anything life- or limb-threatening – a gunshot wound or significant trauma – should go to the emergency room,” Alderman said. “But a broken ankle, stitches, asthma, pneumonia – all that stuff is welcome at MedExpress.”
He said that a physician and registered nurse are always on site.
Alderman said the company also works with employers to minimize the amount of time that a worker would lose if he had to go to the ER.
The company is in the networks of most insurance companies, but also offers payment plans for the uninsured, he said.
MedExpress was founded in 2001 and has 52 locations in country.
