In a recent news story, St. Louis television news station KSDK discussed the expansion of our St. Louis urgent care group, Total Access Urgent Care, as well as the expansion of the general urgent care industry within the St. Louis, Missouri area. In the broadcast segment, KSDK talked about how Total Access Urgent Care will be opening its fifth location by the end of the summer. The St. Louis urgent care medical group will be opening its new location at the intersection of Chippewa and Jamieson in south St. Louis, taking the place of a Blockbuster that is going out of business.
According to the news story, the urgent care business is a growing industry within the local area. Urgent care offers medical care for patients who need to see a doctor right away but who may not necessarily be ill or injured enough to require a visit to the emergency room. KSDK even mentioned that a local hospital is encouraging patients to turn to urgent care centers for more minor medical concerns that still need immediate attention. The news station noted that slip and fall accidents caused by patches of ice are one thing that are sending people into urgent care centers and emergency rooms right now.
