New NWC urgent care center opens on Tucson's west side

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - There is a new Northwest Urgent Care Center opening on Tucson's west side, according to a recent release from Northwest Medical Center.

The new facility is located at 1370 N. Silverbell Road, Ste. 170 near Speedway and Silverbell. According to NWC officials the clinic will open Monday, July 7 and will be open seven days a week, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. This will make it more convenient for patients to be seen in the evenings and on weekends.

No appointments are necessary to be seen, patients only need to walk in to be seen by a doctor. The new center will be staffed by doctors that specialize in urgent care; in addition there will be a walk-in lab, EKG and x-ray available at this new clinic.

"We know urgent care services are a convenient way for many people to receive care when they can't get in to see their primary care physician," said NWC CEO Kevin Stockton. "Our urgent care centers are a great option for illness and injuries that happen after hours or on weekends, for patients of all ages. We're excited about this new location and being able to serve the community around the Speedway and Silverbell area."

There are currently six NWC Urgent Care centers across Tucson. To find the closest location go online to www.NorthwestMedicalCenter.com.

To celebrate the new opening Northwest Urgent Care 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 this free event and may be made by calling 866-NW4WELL (866-694-9355). Space is limited so parents are encouraged to call as soon as possible.
