Monday, August 01, 2011
Parma Community General Hospital has opened its third retail health clinic in Parma Heights.
The Community Express Care clinic is housed inside the Discount Drug Mart at 6476 York Road in Parma Heights. The clinic can take patients as young as 2 years old. Certified nurse practitioners provide treatment for common, non-emergent conditions such as:
- Ear infections, sinus infections and upper respiratory tract infections
- Strep throat, ear wax removal, suture/staple removal
- Cold sores, common warts and eczema
- Insect bites, bee stings, minor cuts and abrasions
- Seasonal allergies, minor rashes and minor colds
The certified nurse practitioners also perform immunizations for pneumonia, tetanus, hepatitis B and measles/mumps/rubella. Screenings for blood pressure and blood sugar are available, as well as exams needed for students to participate in sports and camps. Most major insurances are accepted at the clinic, except for sports/camp exams, which are not billed to insurance.
“Many people have stopped by and thanked us for opening in their store,” says Melissa Nemeth, certified nurse practitioner. “We’re glad to be able to offer people in the community a convenient, quick, walk-in clinic for their basic illnesses.”
Parma Hospital opened its first location of Community Express Care inside the Discount Drug Mart in Olmsted Falls in July 2008 and followed with a clinic inside the Independence Drug Mart in October 2009.
All Community Express Care clinics are open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The clinics can be reached by calling 440-743-CARE.
