Starting today, residents in Lubbock have another option when it comes to emergencies.
Covenant medical group has opened another clinic; this one is located at Quaker and 19th street.
"We opened this urgent care center to help with truly urgent care needs, sprains, sutures, sick children, and sick adults," says Kerri Pope, practice supervisor of Covenant Medical Group.
The new facility can perform lab work as well as x-rays and its goal is for incoming patients to spend less time waiting than they would in an emergency room.
So, if you have a sudden emergency, the new Covenant Urgent Care Center is open 365 days a year. From 9 to 9 Monday through Friday and 9 to 6 on the weekends.
