Immediate Care Launches in Northwestern Medicine's New Glenview Outpatient Center
Unlike most non-emergency room urgent clinics, at Northwestern Medicine Immediate Care every patient is seen by a physician. This is an added convenience especially when a patient’s regular primary care physician’s office may be closed. Immediate Care staff are trained to evaluate and treat a variety of medical conditions in both adults and pediatric patients (over the age of 6 weeks).
The center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week and requires no appointment to be seen. Some of the more common conditions treated at Immediate Care include flu, fever, and colds; sinus infections and urinary tract infections; strains and sprains; poison ivy, animal and bug bites; and rashes and sunburns. Major injuries and traumas should always be directed to full-service emergency rooms.
Primary care services offered at the Glenview Outpatient Center include internal medicine and pediatrics. Specialty services will include cardiology, dermatology, gastroenterology, general surgery, neurology, oncology, ophthalmology, optometry, orthopaedics, otolaryngology, sports medicine and urology. Laboratory and X-ray services will be offered immediately with advanced imaging services—like MRI screens and CT scanning—to be offered sometime this summer.
The Glenview Outpatient Center opened March 1. It is one of seven new Northwestern Medicine clinics in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood, Evanston, Libertyville, Deerfield, Grayslake and Highland Park, Illinois.
