Grand Opening! Convenient Care at Northgate Hy-Vee, Davenport
By 9 a.m. on Monday, patients were already discovering the convenience and “one stop’’ health services of Genesis Convenient Care at the Northgate Hy-Vee store in Davenport.
Located between the pharmacy and a new Starbucks in renovated space inside the store at 1823 East Kimberly Road, the new Genesis Convenient Care location was opened with a ribbon-cutting event attended by representatives of the Quad Cities Chamber.
The newest Genesis Convenient Care is the second location in a Hy-Vee store. There is also a similar clinic in the Hy-Vee store at 2352 West Locust Street in Davenport.
“Thanks to our partnership with Hy-Vee, this clinic model has already proven to be a success,’’ said Dr. Kurt Andersen, executive medical officer, Genesis Health Group. “This partnership allows us to bring health care to where it is convenient and accessible for patients.’’
In recent months, Genesis also opened Convenient Care by Reservation at the Woodlands in Bettendorf and at the Genesis Health Group clinic in Eldridge.
The locations in both Hy-Vee stores offer convenient and quick care for a list of minor illnesses. Genesis Convenient Care is not intended to replace patient visits to their primary care provider.
Among the conditions treated by the convenient care locations in Hy-Vee stores are sore throat; earache; sinus conditions; cold and flu symptoms; bug bites; rash, cough; and, conjunctivitis (pink eye).
Clinic hours are 7:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays.
