Jackson Health System will celebrate the grand opening of its first urgent care center, one of six centers announced under its $1.8 billion capital plan. UHealth Jackson Urgent Care in Country Walk will start serving patients immediately after a ribbon-cutting event on September 19.

Nearly three years ago, Jackson began its journey towards expanding its reach deeper into the community it serves after winning the support of Miami-Dade voters. Through the capital plan, Jackson is building new hospitals, renovating outdated facilities, and upholding a promise that it made to taxpayer owners.

The new urgent center is located in Country Walk Plaza at 13707 S.W. 152nd Street. The center is 4,000 square-feet and will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8p.m. The center is strategically located in a neighborhood that previously lacked access to the existing Jackson network of hospitals.

In addition to the Country Walk site, five additional urgent care locations are currently in different phases of development in North Miami, South Beach, Cutler Bay, North Miami-Dade, and Doral.

All of the new centers will be called UHealth Jackson Urgent Care, and staffed by University of Miami Health System expert, board-certified physicians and Jackson’s world-class nurses and support staff.

The centers will cater to patients with urgent care needs such as ailments like the flu or common cold, fever, vomiting, earaches, simple bone fractures, rashes and minor allergic reactions; diagnostic tests such as echocardiograms and digital x-rays; and lab tests such as blood glucose, urinalysis, and strep throat cultures. Sports physicals and flu vaccine will also be available.

When: September 19, 2016, 10:00 a.m.
