UMC Physician Network Services is offering a healthier way to shop.
Express Care Clinic, PNS's newest walk-in facility, opens Friday inside the South Plains Mall. It is the only medical facility located in Lubbock's busiest shopping center.
Glen Frick, PNS Chief Operating Officer, is pleased with the positive reception the clinic has received from fellow South Plains Mall merchants.
"Earlier in the week, our staff went to meet the various mall merchants and tell them about our new location," Frick said. "We found that they were excited for us to bring health care to the mall – not only for the potential patients we will care for but for their employees as well."
The clinic is located between Premier Cinemas and Dillard's. It's accessible from inside the mall, as well as an outside entrance off 57th Street.
The urgent care facility offers treatment for acute medical needs such as flu, sore throat or minor injuries. The clinic also offers occupational medicine services such as pre-employment physicals and drug screening. Express Care Clinic is available on the PNS Wait from Home network at waitfromhome.com.
The clinic is open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday. For more information, please call Express Care Clinic at 806.761.0450.
