CHICAGO, June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MedSpring Immediate Care today announced plans to open its fourth Chicago clinic in the fall of 2014. The new center will be located at 219 W. Chicago Ave., Chicago, IL 60654 between N. Franklin St. and N. Wells St.
The new River North walk-in clinic will be MedSpring's fourth in Chicago after opening its Naperville and Arlington Heights locations in December of 2012, followed by its Lakeview location in March of 2013. Outside of Chicago, MedSpring serves patients at six urgent care clinics in Austin and five in Houston.
"After receiving a warm welcome at our Naperville, Arlington Heights and Lakeview centers, we are thrilled to expand into a new area of Chicago this year," said MedSpring's Chief Medical Officer Jon L. Belsher, M.D. "We look forward to providing quality, cost-effective immediate care services to the River North neighborhood and its surrounding communities."
MedSpring's new location will have doctors on-site from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. daily, including Saturdays and Sundays, and will be convenient for people living or working in the River North, Near North Side, West Town, Near West Side, Streeterville, Chicago Harbor, Chicago Loop and Grant Park neighborhoods.
Doctors at the River North clinic will provide treatment for common illnesses and injuries, including respiratory infections, allergies, fever, stomach pain, cuts, scrapes and broken bones. Additional services will include immunizations, X-rays, lab tests, drug screens and physicals. By visiting an immediate care clinic like MedSpring, patients can save thousands of dollars and hours of wait time versus a trip to a hospital emergency room.
MedSpring patients enjoy a distinctive and relaxing atmosphere with unique amenities, including complimentary snacks and beverages, free Wi-Fi, in-room televisions and activities for children. Following their visit, patients rate MedSpring 4.9 out of 5 stars.
MedSpring currently operates 14 clinics and has announced plans to open three more this year, including expansion into the Dallas market. Each location is open from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. seven days a week.
