Beginning Saturday, April 1, Newton Medical Center’s Convenient Care clinic will have new weekend hours.
Previously, the walk-in clinic was open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily (excluding major holidays). While the weekday hours will remain the same, weekend hours of operation will change to between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m.
“Historically, Saturday and Sunday mornings have been two of our busiest times. We often have people waiting in line before the clinic even opens,” said Alex Haines, vice president of clinic operations, Newton Medical Center. “So, by opening an hour earlier, we’ll be able to better serve our patients and the community.”
Convenient Care, which opened last summer, offers same-day treatment for non-emergency illnesses and injuries. The clinic is located at 118 E. 12th Street in Newton
