St. Joseph Mercy Saline will open its new Urgent Care at 7025 E. Michigan Avenue in the Country Creek Plaza shopping center on Wednesday, July 22 at 8 a.m., offering walk-in medical care for the community.
Outpatient services including lab draws and general diagnostics/X-rays also will be relocated to the new urgent care location at this time.
This new location at the corner of State Street and Michigan Avenue is ideally situated near Saline Area Schools and prominent shopping districts, with easy freeway access. The urgent care will continue to be staffed with clinical providers from Saint Joseph Mercy Health System and Emergency Physicians Medical Group (EPMG).
“We look forward to continuing to provide care for Saline and the surrounding communities in a new, convenient location," said Michael Mikhail, M.D., regional vice president at EPMG who serves as regional director for emergency medicine at Saint Joseph Mercy Health System.
Offering walk-in medical care, urgent care fills the need for non-emergency minor illness and injury such as sprains, wounds requiring stitches, rashes and illnesses such as cold and flu. Student sports physicals will also be offered on a walk-in basis. As a freestanding urgent care, St. Joseph Mercy Saline Urgent Care & Outpatient Services will be able to offer competitive pricing and self-pay discounts.
The urgent care, lab and radiology services offered at St. Joseph Mercy Saline located at 400 Russell St. will permanently close effective Saturday, July 18 at 8 p.m.
The community pavilion will continue to be housed at St. Joseph Mercy Saline as a resource for education such as drug prevention, nutrition and exercise classes, as well as some physician offices. Evangelical Home Saline also will remain in the facility, offering 24-hour nursing services and support, including short-term rehabilitation, longterm care, memory and hospice care.
