WellSpan Health is opening its first urgent care center in Lebanon County, offering area residents access to convenient, walk-in care for non-emergency medical conditions.
WellSpan Urgent Care is located at 9 Nathan Lane, Annville, along Route 422, between Palmyra and Lebanon. It will begin seeing patients Monday, Aug. 24.
The 5,000-square-foot new building has six exam rooms, an X-ray suite and a laboratory for testing. It employs 10 people.
"We are excited to serve residents with WellSpan's first Urgent Care in Lebanon County, joining our Lititz and Ephrata locations in nearby Lancaster County," said Creston Tate, D.O., medical director of WellSpan Health Urgent Care. "We want people to be able to access the care they need in a convenient location staffed by board-certified physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants."
The Annville office will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
WellSpan is committed to safety in all its communities. The Urgent Care office will use the same safety protocols that have been put into place across the WellSpan system in the wake of COVID-19, including social distancing in waiting areas, masks and enhanced sterilization procedures to the highest standards.
Patients also can take advantage of scheduling their appointment in advance, via an online service called "Reserve My Spot," scheduling an appointment via smartphones, computer or tablets.
WellSpan Urgent Care offers care for patients age 3 months and older, who have non-emergency care needs. These include minor illnesses and injuries such as earaches, vomiting, back pain, rashes and burns. The office also will offer school, camp, college and sports physicals as well as some routine immunizations.
WellSpan Urgent Care has locations in Lancaster, York, Franklin, Cumberland and Adams counties. Learn more about WellSpan Urgent Care.
