MedExpress, a national leader in urgent care, opened its newest Michigan neighborhood medical center in Benton Harbor on Friday, Nov. 25.
The center, located at 1803 M-139, is the company’s first location in Benton Harbor and tenth in the state.
"We know how busy our patients’ lives are and that unexpected illnesses and injuries can be an inconvenience for families. But at MedExpress, we’re here to serve the community and make health care as easy and convenient as possible," says Linda Kline, MedExpress Area Manager for Michigan. "Patients can walk in, see our friendly medical team and receive high-quality treatment in a timely fashion.”
MedExpress is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Appointments are not necessary. The center offers walk-in treatment for everyday illness and injury through its urgent care services, which include more advanced offerings such as X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches and treatment for sprains and broken bones.
MedExpress also offers basic wellness services such as sports physicals, routine physicals, immunizations and tobacco cessation counseling. MedExpress also offers employer health services such as workers’ compensation, injury care and pre-employment screenings and physicals.
MedExpress centers accept most major insurance and offer affordable pricing for those without insurance. Centers are staffed by a full medical team, which includes customer service representatives, nurses, providers and radiologic technologists. As a neighborhood medical center and community health care partner, MedExpress can help refer patients, when necessary, within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physician, and hospitals.
