Late last week, Five Star Urgent Care - one of upstate New York's fastest growing urgent care providers - opened its doors to Niagara County with the grand opening of its Niagara Falls facility. As of Thursday, the facility began accepting new walk-in patients for non-life-threatening ailments.
"Five Star Urgent Care is extremely excited to open our doors in Niagara County and provide the community with our established customer-focused method to healthcare," said Five Star Urgent Care President John Radford. "Our team shares a vision of helping save the day when injuries and illnesses arise by providing comfortable and convenient care for patients, from the time they walk in the door until the time they leave."
The facility hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony joined by community members as well as New York State Assemblyman Angelo J. Morinello and Niagara Falls City Councilman Christopher Voccio. Guests toured the new facility, met the staff and learned more about the services and treatments.
"Our community is very pleased that Five Star Urgent Care chose Niagara Falls for its next location. With medical expenses continually increasing, it is important that there are convenient and affordable options such as this facility. It is a perfect bridge for non-emergency illnesses or injuries and good quality care for the patients. It is extremely important to our community to have access to Five Star Urgent Care," said Morinello.
The company's staff treats patients on a walk-in basis with most insurance accepted. Patients may view up-to-date wait times at the facility on the urgent care's website at www.FiveStarUC.com. The facility is equipped to offer treatment for non-life-threatening ailments, such as bronchitis, sprains, strains and gastrointestinal ailments, as well as providing onsite x-rays, lab testing and diagnostics. A full list of services and hours can be found online.
"Patients always come first," continued Radford. "By offering onsite X-rays and lab testing, evening and weekend care, and up-to-date wait times online, we provide our patients the chance to receive the highest quality urgent care services at times most convenient to them."
Five Star's new Niagara Falls facility is located at 7432 Niagara Falls Blvd., Niagara Falls and serves patients daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Launched in 2012, Five Star Urgent Care opened its first location in Big Flats, New York. The company continues to expand its footprint and plans to open additional facilities throughout the state in 2018.
