Physicians Immediate Care announced Monday the grand opening of its sixth clinic in Will County, providing Frankfort residents a convenient solution to urgent and unexpected health care needs.
The state-of-the-art 3,700 square-foot clinic at 21035 LaGrange Road (in front of Mariano’s) is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. The walk-in clinic is fully equipped with X-ray, lab testing and six exam rooms, including a pediatric room and two trauma rooms, for treating non-life threatening injuries and illnesses and performing minor surgical procedures.
“Questions about health concerns can create a lot of anxiety. People worry about things like ‘Is it a virus?,’ ‘Do I need stitches?’ or ‘Is it serious?’” said Dr. Kimberly Mitchell, one of the on-site physicians at Physicians Immediate Care in Frankfort, who is board certified in emergency medicine. “Some injuries and illnesses just can’t wait. When someone in Frankfort can’t get into their family doctor and it isn’t severe enough for the ER, we’re here to help.”
“We’re excited to be a part of the Frankfort community with a great location right on U.S. Route 45,” said Stan Blaylock, CEO of Physicians Immediate Care. “Our patients count on us for remarkable care, long hours and ideal locations – including our New Lenox clinic that we opened three years ago at 621 E. Lincoln Highway. Convenience also means great online and mobile tools that make health care easier to use and more transparent.”
