DMH Expands & Relocates DMH Express Care North

 

New state-of-the-art facility located at old Lone Star restaurant site

Jan. 23, 2009 - A grand opening of the new DMH Express Care North will be Jan. 26, following a move from its current location at 2975 N. Water St., to a larger new state-of-the-art facility located at 3131 N. Water St.

The new facility is wheelchair accessible and encompasses 6200 square feet. The space includes a central nurses station, two triage rooms, a laboratory, 12 exam rooms, an X-ray room, a procedure room, as well as a private admitting area for confidential registration and two waiting areas – one for sick patients and one for well patients. The location has convenient access from both the north on Water Street and from the south on Main Street.

“We’ve outgrown the space of the current DMH Express Care North facility due to the large number of people who seek care at the facility,” said Ken Smithmier, DMH President and CEO.

DMH Express Care North provides quick, non-emergency medical care for adults and children. The facility is open weekdays from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This new facility joins two other DMH Express Care locations. DMH Express Care East is located at 4847 US Route 36 East, and DMH Express Care at Corporate Health is located at 2120 N. 27th St. The clinics are staffed by board certified physicians and offer on-site laboratory and X-ray. No Appointment is necessary.
