The Sheridan Memorial Hospital's new Urgent Care facility is now open.
The hopes, according to hospital administration, is that the more routine cases will go there, to free up the emergency room for critical cases. Hospital marketer Cecile Pattison said the center opened last week.
The Urgent Care center is in the hospital, next to the emergency room. The hospital's located at 1401 W. 5th St. The urgent care area is open daily from 10-8, except Sundays. Payment is expected at time of service.
