Piqua urgent care center announces opening

PIQUA – Premier Health will hold an open house for its newest urgent care location in Piqua.

The site is part of a larger rollout, which now includes nine locations throughout Southwest Ohio.

The Premier Health Urgent Care in Piqua, located inside the Outpatient Care Center North Premier Health building at 280 N. Looney Road, will have an open house from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 4. The urgent care is located directly off Interstate 75 on Exit 82 and will officially open to patients on April 6.

The urgent care location will handle a variety of health care needs from minor illnesses such as sinus infections, earaches, allergies and pink eye to injuries such as fractured bones. Providers also will be able to conduct school and sports physicals, and administer vaccinations. Diagnostic testing for the flu, pregnancy and strep can be done on-site as well as X-rays.

Premier Health Urgent care locations also offer many occupational health services such as initial injury and post-accident care.

The Piqua location will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. every day of the week. Each Premier Health Urgent Care is staffed by local advanced practice providers, which are physician assistants and nurse practitioners who work under the close supervision of a physician.

Patients are able to register for an appointment time online and wait in the comfort of their own home up until the time of their appointment. Walk-in appointments also will be available through registration at self-check-in kiosks. Individuals who check-in on-site may leave to run errands while they wait for their time to arrive and be alerted through mobile devices when their appointment is getting close so they don’t run the risk of losing their spot in line.
