Newton Medical Center (NMC) is planning an open house for its new walk-in clinic, Convenient Care, on Thursday, August 18.
Between 4 and 6 p.m. that day, the public is invited to tour the new clinic, meet the providers and enjoy refreshments. The first 20 people will receive a free first aid kit. In addition, a Chamber ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at 4:30 p.m.
“For non-emergency needs, Convenient Care will provide patients with an affordable alternative to the ER when their primary care physician isn’t available,” says Stefanie Hayes, vice president at Newton Medical Center. “We’re pleased to be able to offer this health care convenience to the Newton community.”
The clinic will offer same-day non-emergency treatment for illnesses including sinus infections and the flu, as well as for injuries such as sprains, strains or minor lacerations. School and Department of Transportation physicals will also be available. Additionally, the clinic will provide vaccines for flu, meningitis, pneumonia, shingles and tetanus.
