Richmond Welcomes New MedExpress Neighborhood Medical Center, Sept. 20
Free flu shots will be available to the
Richmond community while supplies last starting September 20.
MedExpress Urgent Care announces the opening of its new neighborhood medical center in Richmond on Sept. 20 at 8040 W. Broad St. To help Richmond-area residents prepare for the upcoming flu season, the new center will offer free flu shots to patients ages four and up starting the day the center opens and while supplies last.
MedExpress has 17 neighborhood medical centers in Virginia, with plans to bring the same warm, welcoming approach to more communities across the state, including new centers in Marion, scheduled to open later this month, and Franklin, planned for this fall.
The Richmond center will care for people of all ages, providing urgent care, employer health services, and basic wellness and prevention services. Walk-in treatment is available for everyday illness and injury, including more advanced services such as X-rays, IVs, labs, minor surgery, stitches, and treatment for broken bones, sprains, and strains. Local employers can use MedExpress for employer health services including workers’ compensation, injury care, pre- and ongoing employment screenings, physicals, and regulatory exams. Basic wellness and prevention services offered at MedExpress include sports physicals, routine physicals, and immunizations to help Richmond-area residents maintain overall good health and well-being.
“We’re so honored to join the Richmond community as part of our commitment to making sure local patients, families, and employees have access to patient-centered care that meets their needs as well as their busy schedules,” said Evan Glover, Area Manager for Virginia. “From the moment a patient walks through our doors, we’re completely focused on exceeding their expectations and providing the best possible experience. We do this by delivering care one person and one relationship at a time. Our patients truly are at the center of everything we do.”
The center in Richmond will be open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., with no appointment necessary. MedExpress accepts all major insurances and offers affordable pricing for those without insurance. The center will be staffed by a full medical team, which includes customer service representatives, nurses, medical providers, and radiologic technologists. As a community health care partner, MedExpress believes strongly in the importance of working with fellow community health care providers to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients. When necessary, the Richmond team can help refer patients within the broader health care system, including referrals to specialists, primary care physicians, and hospitals.
