Facility will provide treatment for nonlife-threatening injuries and illnesses seven days a week with no appointment needed
WellNow Urgent Care – one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent care providers – has opened the doors to its newest center in Hamburg. Located at 4909 Southwestern Blvd., the new facility offers treatments for nonlife-threatening injuries and illnesses from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. seven days a week – with no appointment needed.
"Every community should have access to urgent medical care within a 20-minute, or less, drive. By opening our Hamburg center, we're able to provide that to southtown communities," said WellNow Urgent Care President John Radford, M.D. "We look forward to offering communities better access to urgent care services and COVID-19 testing, especially during the upcoming months of inclement weather."
To celebrate the opening of the new location, WellNow hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony with the Southtowns Regional Chamber of Commerce to cut a ribbon in commemoration of the day.
The new center provides timely service for ailments such as sprains, burns, colds and allergies – while also providing on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals. Patients are treated on a walk-in basis, but may also visit www.WellNow.com to check-in online or view up-to-date wait times. COVID-19 PCR swab and blood antibody serology testing are also offered to patients without the need for a referral or prescription. WellNow accepts most insurance, including Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis and Veterans Affairs TriWest. A full list of services can be found online at WellNow.com/services.
In the coming weeks, WellNow Urgent Care will begin to offer COVID-19 rapid swab testing to all centers including the new Hamburg location.
WellNow Urgent Care also offers Erie County employers a wide range of occupational medicine services. From DOT/19A physicals and workers’ compensation assistance to respirator fit exams and audiometry, businesses can partner with WellNow to develop a custom occupational medicine program fit for their industry.
With more nearly 50 locations currently operated across New York and Illinois, WellNow’s Hamburg location joins a growing list of Erie County locations, including Orchard Park, West Seneca, Lancaster and Amherst. Patients can also connect with a WellNow provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the company’s telehealth platform.
