Beginning March 1, Convenient Care, currently found inside Saint Francis Medical Center’s Emergency Department, will consolidate with and become part of Immediate Convenient Care (ICC), which has urgent care locations in Cape Girardeau and Jackson.
With this move, patients can choose an established walk-in urgent care location that offers quick and cost-effective care for urgent care needs.
“This consolidation will allow our Emergency Department to more effectively treat a higher volume of emergency and trauma patients this year and going forward,” explains Steven C. Bjelich, FACHE-D, President and Chief Executive Officer at Saint Francis Healthcare System. “Plus, our patients will receive the same great care at a reasonable price.”
ICC offers extended hours during the week and over the weekend, with no appointment necessary. ICC also provides:
- Expert care treating minor illnesses and injuries
- Complete family medical care, lab tests and a range of occupational services
- A licensed counselor at our Cape Girardeau facility for those feeling depressed, anxious or overwhelmed
Saint Francis also has teamed up with Doctors Express to provide additional urgent care coverage in Cape Girardeau, treating everything from cuts, bruises and fractures to the common cold. They also provide on-site lab tests, X-rays and prescriptions.
