MedExpress, a national leader in urgent care, will open two neighborhood medical centers in Illinois on Nov. 9.

The centers, in Quincy at N. 24th St. and Collinsville at 515 Belt Line Rd. in the St. Louis area, are the company’s third and fourth locations in Illinois. MedExpress plans additional centers in Normal and O’Fallon during the remainder of the year, with an additional location in Peoria planned for 2017.

Both centers will offer two weeks of free flu shots for patients ages 9 and up from Nov. 9 -22.

MedExpress centers are open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with no appointments necessary, offering a convenient option for consumers with immediate health care needs.

The centers offer 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.  In addition, MedExpress offers employer health services such as workers’ compensation, injury care and pre-employment screenings and physicals.

MedExpress centers accept most major insurances 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 physicians and hospitals.
