Resurrection Health Care Announces the Opening of Its First Express Care Clinic Inside JEWEL-OSCO in Lakeview to Offer Quick, High Quality Health Care

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - Nov 2, 2011) - Resurrection Health Care announced the opening of its first Express Care clinic, located inside the JEWEL-OSCO at 2940 N. Ashland, Chicago's Lakeview community. The Express Care staff will provide quick and expert care for many common illnesses, minor injuries, and skin problems, plus lab tests, vaccinations and physicals, all with a focus on high quality personal care.

Appointments are not necessary to visit the Express Care - Lakeview clinic, and with its extended hours -- the clinic is open until 8 p.m. six nights a week, and until 4:00 p.m. on Sundays and holidays -- patients can easily receive expert care for minor medical problems. Staffed by Resurrection nurse practitioners and medical assistants, patients will also have the added benefit of a wide-range of health care services readily available through a large heath care system.

"We are happy to offer our same great care in a location that allows us to better serve the health care needs of families through quick and easy access to services, at an affordable price," said John Sabbia, MD, senior vice president and chief medical officer, Resurrection Medical Group. "We want to be partners in health with our communities and with our physicians to provide continuity of care, by helping physicians broaden the scope of care to families and being available when patients need us most."

Unlike most easy-access health care clinics located in retail stores, the Express Care clinic sees patients in an alcove to protect their privacy. There is also a private waiting area, and an on-site pharmacy open 24-hours a day.

"Health and wellness is a top priority for us," said Tom Rousonelos, JEWEL-OSCO vice president of pharmacy operations. "This partnership with Resurrection Health Care will enhance the services available in our stores, while eliminating some of the barriers, such as cost, work and school schedules and proximity, that can prevent patients from receiving the medical attention they need."

Express Care - Lakeview clinic hours are Monday - Saturday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., and Sunday and holidays 8 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. For more information, visit express-care.com.
