Northwestern Medicine Glenview Outpatient Center May 02, 2013
GLENVIEW, IL – Northwestern Medicine today announced that a new Immediate Care Center will open on Monday, May 6, at its facility at 2701 Patriot Boulevard in Glenview, Illinois.
“Our patients now have easier access to Northwestern Medicine comprehensive care through a fourth Immediate Care Center, following the opening of our Lakeview, Evanston and Deerfield Immediate Care Centers. Our newest convenient location is in Glenview,” said Daniel Derman, MD, vice president, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, and president, Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group (NMPG). The Deerfield office of Northwestern Memorial Physicians Group opened an Immediate Care Center last week at 350 South Waukegan Road, Deerfield.
The Glenview Immediate Care Center is staffed seven days a week by licensed physicians who are trained to evaluate and treat a variety of medical conditions and non-emergency injuries in both adults and pediatric patients (over the age of six weeks), providing patients the opportunity to be treated by a physician during the hours that their regular primary care physician’s office is closed. Radiology services are also available seven days a week.
The center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 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
- Rashes and sunburns
Physicians at the Glenview Immediate Care Center also work with patients to ensure they have follow-up care with their primary care physician. Patients without a regular physician are assisted in identifying a primary care physician to ensure a continuum of care.
