The clinic will be staffed by advanced practice nurses supervised by Memorial Physician Services physicians and will offer treatment for non-life-threatening conditions to all ages.
Staff will treat illnesses and injuries including cold, cough and flu symptoms; sprains; fevers; minor burns and cuts; ear, eye and skin infections; nausea and vomiting; sore throats; urinary tract infections; skin rashes and seasonal allergies. Staff will also offer sports, school and day care provider physicals.
“Hy-Vee’s top priority is taking care of our customers. With the new walk-in primary care clinic in our store, our customers will not only have access to our in-store dietitians and pharmacists, they will also be able to seek health, wellness and preventive care services all in one stop,” said Erin Bailey, Hy-Vee’s assistant vice president of health and wellness. “We are excited to work with Memorial Physician Services so we can continue to help our customers lead healthier, happier lives.”
The walk-in clinic becomes the seventh Memorial Physician Services location in the Springfield area.
