Presence Health and Physicians Immediate Care announced the grand opening of a new clinic in Bradley, Ill., that will provide residents in the Kankakee, Bourbonnais and Bradley communities with a convenient solution to their urgent care and occupational medicine needs. It is the first brand-new clinic to open under a joint venture between Presence Health and Physicians Immediate Care that was announced in September.
The state-of-the-art, 4,192- square-foot clinic at 350 N. Kinzie Ave. is open seven days a week, with extended hours from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. The walk-in clinic is fully equipped with X-ray, lab testing and eight exam rooms -- including a pediatric room and one trauma room -- for treating non-life threatening injuries and illnesses and performing minor surgical procedures.
The clinic will also offer occupational health services to employers for treatment of their employees work-related injuries, drug and alcohol testing and a variety of work-related physical examinations. In order to concentrate on all services in one location, Presence St. Mary's Occupational Health Center and J. Michael Panuska, M.D., have relocated from Bourbonnais to the Bradley Clinic.
““We are excited to be partnering with one of the leading health systems in Illinois that shares our vision of coordinated care for the benefit of our patients,” said Stan Blaylock, CEO of Physicians Immediate Care. “Our patients can count on us for remarkable care and for that care to be offered during convenient hours at convenient locations. Convenience also means great online and mobile tools that make health care easier to navigate and more transparent.”
At visitphysicians.com/Bradley, for example, patients can see current wait times. They also can check in online before arriving, learn about the physicians and physician assistants on staff and see which insurance plans are accepted.
”Our partnership provides patients with greater access to convenient, affordable, quality care. This new locations will serve their immediate care and occupational health needs, and those who need longer term care will be connected with Presence Health physicians for continued treatment,” said Howard Drenth, President and CEO of Presence Medical Group.
The new Bradley clinic is one of 10 immediate care/occupational medicine clinics in the greater Chicago area that will be managed through the Presence Health/Physicians Immediate Care joint venture.
