Genesis to Offer Convenient Care Services In Eldridge
Residents of Eldridge and northern Scott County will have expanded access to health care in October when Genesis begins offering Convenient Care extended hours services at Genesis Health Group Family Practice, Eldridge.
The clinic, located at 301 North 4th Avenue, presently serves family practice patients between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Beginning October 14, the location will provide Convenient Care hours from 5-8 p.m. each day, and be open on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., for walk-in services.
The Eldridge Convenient Care clinic will offer walk-in access to health care services for minor conditions and injuries, including:
• Strep throat
• Minor fractures
• Other acute problems
• Seasonal flu vaccinations
Eldridge Convenient Care services will include laboratory and imaging (X-ray). Before heading to the clinic, patients can check the wait time or reserve a spot in line by checking-in online at www.genesishealth.com.
For patients already established with one of the primary care/family practice providers in Eldridge, Convenient Care should not be considered as an alternative to annual wellness appointments or follow up visits for chronic problems. Those appointments should be scheduled during regular family practice clinic business hours.
Providers at the location are accepting new patients.
Eldridge will be the fifth Iowa location where Genesis Convenient Care walk-in clinic services are available, joining the Bettendorf HealthPlex at 2140 53rd Avenue; the Davenport HealthPlex at 3200 W. Kimberly Road; Convenient CareNow at Hy-Vee, 2351 West Locust Street, Davenport; and Convenient Care by Reservation at the Woodlands at 4321 53rd Ave., Bettendorf. Genesis also offers walk-in clinic services in Illinois at the Moline HealthPlex, 3900 28th Avenue Drive.
