VERNON HILLS, IL – Northwestern Medicine recently opened a new Immediate Care Center that is accessible 365 days a year at the northwest corner of Milwaukee Avenue and Townline Road in Vernon Hills.   

“We are excited to continue to expand access to Northwestern Medicine’s care to our patients in the northern suburbs by opening this new comprehensive center in Vernon Hills,” said Thomas J. McAfee, president of Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital. “The Vernon Hills center not only offers treatment of minor emergencies in an immediate care setting but also primary and family medicine care at a convenient location close to where our patients work and live.”
 
The Vernon Hills Immediate Care Center, located at 870 N. Milwaukee Ave., is staffed by licensed physicians and emergency medical technicians who are trained to evaluate and treat a variety of medical conditions in both adults and children over the age of 6 weeks. All patients are seen by a physician, providing patients the opportunity to be treated by a physician during the hours their regular primary care physician’s office may be closed.  
The Vernon Hills 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 centers 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 the full-service emergency room at Lake Forest Hospital. Free parking is available at the center.   
 
The center also offers primary care and imaging services Monday through Saturday, starting at 8 a.m. and onsite breast imaging and mammography with tomosynthesis (3D), computer tomography (CT), X-Ray, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) ultrasound and more.
