Christ Hospital Opens Urgent Care Center in Ft. Wright
The Christ Hospital Health Network has announced the opening of a new Urgent Care Center in Ft. Wright.
The new facility is located off I-71/75 at 1955 Dixie Highway, Suite F (in the same building with The Christ Hospital Outpatient Center – Ft. Wright). Patients will be cared for by experienced Christ Hospital providers.
X-ray and lab services will be available on-site.
“We encourage everyone to first and foremost develop a relationship with a primary care physician, but we also understand that because of busy schedules or urgent situations, there are times when a medical need is going to require immediate attention,” said Joseph Bateman, M.D., executive medical director of The Christ Hospital Physicians – Primary Care, the hospital-owned primary care group. “With the Urgent Care Center’s extended hours and convenient Northern Kentucky location, patients will have rapid access to quality care at a cost that is more aligned with that of a doctor’s office visit compared to a trip to the emergency room.”
Staff will treat urgent medical needs ranging from acute illness, such as respiratory or stomach bugs, to infections, sprains, strains, cuts, burns, rashes, bites, and more, while also providing sports physicals and on-site diagnostic testing.
The Christ Hospital Urgent Care – Ft. Wright will accept most commercial insurance and will also welcome non-insured patients wishing to self-pay. The Center does not require appointments and will operate Monday through Sunday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
