Saint Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) October 06, 2016
Today Our Urgent Care announces the grand opening of a new urgent care in Richmond Heights with a ribbon cutting event planned for 11am on Tuesday, October 4, 2016.
“As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of our first location, my partners and I could not be more committed to the original mission upon which Our Urgent Care was founded--to provide a more convenient and cost effective healthcare alternative for our community,” said Shivaram Kalugotla, MD, Partner at Our Urgent Care. “The Richmond Heights medical center brings this mission to a fifth community in the Saint Louis Region and we look forward to being of service to our new neighbors.”
With construction completed ahead of schedule, Our Urgent Care Richmond Heights opened its doors on September 26, 2016 in the same shopping center as the Post Office and New Balance near the intersection of Big Bend Boulevard and Interstate 64/Highway 40. This medical center provides occupational medicine, x-ray, rapid lab testing, and immediate care for injuries and illness. Residents, workers, and visitors in central Saint Louis County can walk-in or make an appointment to be seen at their convenience during the hours of 8 am to 8pm. Our Urgent Care accepts most major insurances or patients are offered cash pay alternatives.
Founded by five emergency room physicians who have more than 120 total years of experience, Our Urgent Care is a true alternative to hospital emergency rooms and other ‘chain’ or hospital-owned urgent care centers. The first location opened in Wentzville in 2006, and since then medical centers have opened in Saint Charles, Maryland Heights, Florissant and Richmond Heights. Our Urgent Care is an Urgent Care Association of America certified facility, with 14 highly trained, licensed providers who have extensive emergency department experience specializing in both general and pediatric care.
