McPherson, Kan. – McPherson Center for Health and McPherson Medical & Surgical Associates are excited to announce that beginning July 11, 2022, walk-in clinic services will be located at the Medical Office Building on the hospital campus at 1000 Hospital Drive, Building 3. As a result, urgent care services will no longer be offered at McPherson Urgent Care at 823 North Main. The last day of service at that location will be Friday, July 8.
“It’s all about what is best for patients,” said Chris Stipe, President and CEO of McPherson Center for Health. “Among other things, this change will give our walk-in patients quicker access to lab and radiology services to aid in their diagnosis.”
The Medical Office Building currently houses McPherson Medical & Surgical Associates physician clinics and is a state-of-the-art outpatient center that includes laboratory and x-ray services, as well as procedure rooms within the clinic. Additionally, providers who care for walk-in patients at the new location will be able to consult more readily with other clinic physicians.
“We have been planning this shift in the location of these services for some time,” stated Dr. Trenton VanEaton, Family Medicine Physician overseeing the clinical care delivered at the previous location. He added that moving the walk-in service to the hospital campus will allow for more optimal clinical care for patients that need to see a provider on short notice.
Hospital officials say another benefit to the move is that parking and patient drop off are safer and more convenient at the hospital. “Frankly, we just have more abundant and better resources on the hospital campus to support the care of patients than what we have on Main Street,” Stipe commented.
Clinic hours at the new location will be 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome. To schedule an appointment with a McPherson Medical & Surgical Associates Physician or Provider, call 620-241-7400.
