FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ON:
October 1st, 2018 St. Louis, MO
Our Urgent Care, a locally owned health care network, is expanding its footprint in the St. Louis area with two additional locations in St. Peters and Affton, Missouri. This expansion brings the total number of locations to eight care facilities across the St. Louis metropolitan region. In addition, renovations at the Maryland Heights and Florissant locations will coincide with construction of the new facilities.
The new facilities, as well as the renovation of existing locations, will feature a new building design with an open concept, delivering a level of care that is comfortable, transparent, and hospitable. The spacious waiting areas will have a concierge feel and is to include a coffee bar and fireplace. This unique layout will be configured to ensure patient privacy while offering a level of openness and connection within the walls of an urgent care clinic, which is a concept currently not offered in the St. Louis area.
Our Urgent Care has provided an emergency room alternative to six St. Louis metro communities for over 12 years, offering comprehensive medical services to patients. The expansion matches a nationwide trend of patients utilizing local community urgent cares for treatment of all types, including routine exams, preventive care, and emergency services.
“As we considered our expansion plans, and where we could best fill gaps or enhance health care accessibility, the St. Peters and Affton communities stood out as areas that we could serve well,” said Joseph Seibel, president at Our Urgent Care.
“But our vision extended beyond the geographical location and included how we could best impact the patient experience. We looked at how other industries delivered a more transparent experience and knew we could forge this same kind of path in the urgent care industry. This is what we’ll deliver in our new clinics, and newly renovated clinics.”
The St. Peters location will be located at 1615 Jungermann Road and the Affton location will be located at 10004 Gravois Road. Both offices will be open and fully staffed seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Patients can check-in or schedule an appointment online, although appointments are not necessary.
Construction in St. Peters and Affton is expected to begin in Fall, 2018. Both locations are scheduled to open in late fall/winter of 2018. Renovation in Maryland Heights and Florissant is scheduled to begin in late 2018.
