Care Clinic Opens in University Village

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - SaludA new, after-hours Immediate Care Clinic staffed and run by the emergency department of the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences System has opened in University Village. The facility is designed to treat patients who need non-emergency medical attention for minor injuries, illnesses and immunizations.

The clinic is equipped to retrieve electronic health records or establish new ones, connect patients with primary care providers, and share records for patients already in the UI network. The clinic will soon be connected to the UI Hospital emergency department, which will allow emergency physicians to consult via video link.

The Immediate Care Clinic at 722 W. Maxwell St., second floor, will be open Monday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday, noon to 10 p.m.; closed major holidays. Adults and children ages 12 and older are welcome. Patients don’t need an appointment.
