The new clinic is at 1370 N. Silverbell Road, Suite 170 (near Speedway and Silverbell). It's open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.  No appointments are needed.

The urgent care is staffed by physicians specializing in the urgent care setting, along with physician assistants, nurse practitioners and registered nurses. In addition to urgent care services, walk-in lab, EKG and x-ray are also available.

To celebrate the opening, the urgent care clinic will offer free sports physicals to young athletes on July 25 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

A reservation is required for the free sports physical event and may be made by calling 866-NW4WELL (866-694-9355) to register. Space is limited so parents are encouraged to register their child as soon as possible.
