MedExpress Urgent Care, a neighborhood health care provider, will open its first two neighborhood medical centers in Connecticut this summer.
The centers, in Derby at 68 Division St. and Meriden at 875 E. Main St., will open on July 5 and August 9, respectively.
As a gift to each community, both locations will offer free sports physicals for patients ages five and up for two weeks after the centers open.
The new neighborhood medical centers will care for people of all ages, providing urgent care, employer health services, and basic wellness and prevention services. Walk-in treatment is available for everyday illness and injury, including more advanced offerings such as X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches, and treatment for broken bones, sprains, and strains. Local employers can use MedExpress for employer health services including workers’ compensation, injury care, pre- and ongoing employment screenings, physicals, and regulatory exams. Basic wellness and prevention services offered at MedExpress include sports physicals, routine physicals, and immunizations to help Derby and Meriden residents maintain good health.
“We are delighted to join the communities of Derby and Meriden to provide friendly, high-quality, and convenient care to families and employees,” said Sarah Moses, MedExpress Area Manager in Connecticut. “We know how busy our patients’ lives are and that unexpected illnesses and injuries can be an inconvenience for families. We look forward to bringing our model of care to Connecticut so that our neighbors in Derby and Meriden can walk in, see our friendly medical team, and receive high-quality treatment in a timely fashion.”
The centers will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with no appointment necessary. MedExpress accepts all major insurances and offers affordable pricing for those without insurance. The center will be staffed by a full medical team, which includes customer service representatives, nurses, medical providers, and radiologic technologists. As a community health care partner, MedExpress believes strongly in the importance of working with fellow community health care providers to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. When necessary, the Derby and Meriden teams can help refer patients within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physicians, and hospitals.
MedExpress has more than 200 neighborhood medical centers in 17 states, with plans to bring the same warm, welcoming approach to more communities in Connecticut this year, including the opening of a new center in Middletown this winter.
