The La Vista center is the fourth MedExpress location in Nebraska, with centers already in Lincoln, Fremont and Grand Island. MedExpress plans to bring its same warm, welcoming approach to health care to more Nebraska communities this year, including three centers in Omaha this fall.
“We are delighted to join the community of La Vista to provide friendly, high-quality and convenient care to families and employees,” said Tim Ewing, MedExpress Area Manager.
“We know how busy our patients’ lives are and that unexpected illnesses and injuries can be an inconvenience for families. We look forward to serving the community so that our neighbors in La Vista can walk in, see our friendly medical team, and receive high-quality care in a timely fashion.”
The new center 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 services 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 La Vista residents maintain good health.
The center in La Vista 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 La Vista team can help refer patients within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physicians, and hospitals.
