Mercy to open convenient care clinic in BV
On Thursday, Jan. 4, Mercy will open a convenient care clinic at 613 Orchard Drive in Berryville, Mercy announced in a press release Thursday.
“Our community is growing, and so must the choices for medical care,” said Suzann Bradley, practice manager with Mercy. “Many times, when someone has a minor injury or sore throat, the emergency room is the quickest option – until now.”
The walk-in clinic is for treatment of minor medical conditions. Patients will receive quick, convenient health care with lab testing, sports physicals, flu shots, pneumonia or tetanus shots, injections and breathing treatments. Conditions treated are fever, sprains/strains, ear pain, rashes or sudden skin conditions, respiratory issues, urinary discomfort, minor lacerations, sudden onset of pain, eye irritation and headaches.
“Before this, the nearest walk-in clinic was our site in Eureka Springs,” Bradley said. “Now we’ll be right around the corner, not only saving patients on travel costs, but also hospital bills, too.”
Mercy Convenient Care-Berryville will be staffed by a current Mercy team, including a medical provider, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. On Sundays, the clinic will be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Hours are expected to expand later in the year. No appointments are needed; most insurance is accepted.
“It’s a great option, especially if you’re unable to see your doctor quickly, and still have all your medical history in one spot,” Bradley said.
