Lakeland, FL –Effective, Monday, November 3, Watson Clinic’s Urgent Care department has expanded the hours of operation making it more convenient than ever for residents ages 2 and up to receive expert walk-in care for minor illnesses, injuries and medical emergencies as they arise.
The facility, located on the west side of the Main Clinic at 1600 Lakeland Hills Boulevard in Lakeland, will remain open every weekday from 7 am to 11 pm, and Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm. No appointment is necessary.
“We’ve expanded our hours of operation to meet increased demand for walk-in care,” says Rajendra K. Sawh, MD, a board-certified urgent care specialist and spokesperson for the department. “Our community members like having the ability to seek medical care after hours and on weekends, plus they appreciate our shorter wait times and lower costs than typically experienced in an emergency room. “
Watson Clinic’s Urgent Care is designed to treat minor emergencies, illnesses and accidents without an appointment. Unlike most walk-in facilities, Watson Clinic’s Urgent Care department is fully staffed by a board-certified team of physicians, experienced staff and also offers onsite x-ray, laboratory and CT scan capability for a quicker, more thorough diagnosis. Both existing patients and first-time visitors to Watson Clinic are welcome. For more information, visit www.WatsonClinic.com/UrgentCare or call 863-680-7271.
