New Option for Care through Mercy Springfield to Open

Mercy Clinic Advanced Ambulatory Care will open Monday, October 1.  It will serve those whose illness or injury is too serious for urgent care but not serious enough for the emergency room.

Patients must first call their primary care provider, and if that doctor can't see them right away, they can be referred to the new clinic for an appointment.  It opens Monday in the former Mercy Urgent Care building at National and Montclair.

After hours, Nurse on Call will answer calls to primary care doctors' offices.  After assessing the patient's symptoms, an RN will make a recommendation for urgent care, the ER or can schedule an appointment at the new clinic.

Patients who need urgent care can visit the Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care clinics at 900 E. Battlefield, and at 2150 W. Republic Rd.  Other urgent care locations are in Nixa and Willard and on W. Kearney in Springfield.
