CareNow® Urgent Care today announced the opening of a new clinic at 3509 SW Market St., Lee’s Summit, MO. Part of HCA Healthcare, one of the nation’s largest providers of healthcare services, CareNow operates more than 200 urgent care locations across the country. CareNow is also a part of HCA Midwest Health, the Kansas City area’s largest healthcare provider.
“The Lee’s Summit community is experiencing tremendous growth. And increasingly, people want to access healthcare services closer to where they live, work and play,” said HCA Midwest Health President Keith Zimmerman. “The addition of this new urgent care clinic will complement our already robust healthcare network in this community anchored at Lee’s Summit Medical Center and help us provide more convenient access to high-quality, compassionate healthcare for our patients.”
CareNow Urgent Care clinics offer quick care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, such as sprains and strains, minor burns, coughs, sore throats and flu-like symptoms — as well as physicals, vaccinations, general diagnostics and checkups. The clinics also provide occupational medicine services to local employers, including examinations and treatment of injured workers in worker’s compensation cases, pre-employment screenings and drug tests.
“We are pleased to be a part of the fabric of the Lee’s Summit community,” said CareNow Urgent Care Medical Director Mary Devers, MD. “Like our other CareNow Urgent Care locations throughout the region, the Lee’s Summit South clinic will provide our patients expanded parking, increased clinical space and allow CareNow physicians and staff to provide an enhanced patient experience. CareNow treats non-emergent medical problems that can develop unexpectedly and require immediate attention, complementing services provided by primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms.
“Whether it’s a minor injury or an illness, patients want immediate, convenient care, and we designed the clinic with this in mind.”
CareNow services include family medicine, on-site lab work and X-rays, occupational medicine, physical exams, flu shots, sports physicals and COVID testing. With Virtual Care, patients can see a highly qualified provider from the convenience of their home. Walk-ins are welcome, and patients can save time by using Web Check-In® at CareNow.com to wait at home or anywhere until it’s time to see their provider.
This is the second CareNow Urgent Care clinic to open in the Lee’s Summit community, the first located at 228 NW Oldham Parkway. This addition is one of several investments by HCA Midwest Health in Lee’s Summit to meet the growing needs of the community, said Lee’s Summit Medical Center CEO John McDonald.
“We’re excited to welcome the Lee’s Summit South CareNow clinic to the fold,” McDonald said. “With new facilities like this and a planned advanced surgery center, as well as such investments in our hospital campus as our expanded Intensive Care Unit, we are building healthier tomorrows for the families, friends and neighbors who depend on us for care.”
Additional CareNow Urgent Care locations in the Kansas City area include Belton, Blue Springs, Corbin Park Independence, Lenexa, Olathe, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Raytown and State Line Road.
CareNow Urgent Care locations are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. For more information, visit CareNow.com.
