Premier Health Urgent Care and OCC-Health Center strive to provide outstanding and efficient healthcare while curbing area youth violence.
Premier Health Urgent Care, the only urgent care facility in the Southside’s Hyde Park neighborhood and the only Black-owned urgent care possible in the city of Chicago has opened for business.
“We are happy to open urgent care in Hyde Park because the community needs it. I see so many urban professionals who either delay or go without care because of time constraints. No one has 8 hours to wait in the emergency department for a minor illness or the flexibility to wait 3 weeks because their primary care doctor is booked solid. We are here to help fill that gap,” says Dr. Rutland.
“We are not in competition with the doctors’ offices or the emergency department. We are a supplement to them both, to help relieve the stress on those two facilities.” The center, located at 1301 E. 47th Street Building #2 Chicago, IL, will care for people of all ages, providing urgent care, occupational health, basic wellness, and prevention services.
Once a patient is seen, they are typically treated in less than an hour, making Premier’s walk-in clinic an ideal provider of immediate care when it’s needed the most.
Premier accepts many major types of insurance and offers services at a fraction of the cost of hospital-affiliated urgent care or emergency rooms.
