OhioHealth will open primary care and urgent care services in Franklinton in early November.
Located on the ground level at 14 McDowell St. as part of the Gravity II development, urgent care services open on Nov. 3 and primary care will begin offering services on Nov. 6 in the 13,000 square foot facility. This project is a $4.6 million investment by OhioHealth into the Franklinton community.
“At OhioHealth, we believe that primary care is one of the most important types of healthcare a patient can receive,” said Steve Davies, senior director of operations, OhioHealth Physician Group. “It’s often the starting point of a patient’s healthcare journey and can help them with care from annual checkups to management of a chronic disease and many other services.
“Primary care is something that has not been easily accessible to those who live and work in and around Franklinton, so we couldn’t be happier to be opening and making these services available to all who need them,” said Davies.
Primary care services will be available Monday through Friday, while the urgent care will be open seven days per week. The building also features point of care laboratory services and general X-ray.
Urgent care is a great option when a patient needs to be seen, but it’s not a life-threatening emergency and their primary care provider is closed or not available. Urgent care can treat a variety of needs such as cold or flu-like symptoms, rashes, minor breaks, sprains and strains, animal or insect bites, minor burns or cuts, and allergic reactions.
