Urgent-care center opens at JW Clay Blvd LYNX parking deck

Atrium Health Urgent-Care Center

Ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new urgent-care center at the JW Clay Blvd LYNX parking deck

Atrium Health has opened a new urgent-care location to bring more access to care in University City: Atrium Health Urgent Care University City. The center is in a truly unique location: the JW Clay Blvd LYNX parking deck.

Atrium Health also opened a new urgent care facility on Oct. 1 in south Charlotte, Atrium Health Urgent Care Rea Farms. Both facilities are open 8 am-8 pm seven days a week.

“Patients are eager for more alternatives when they get sick,” said Michael Staples, assistant vice president of Atrium Health Medical Group.

“The new urgent care locations further our commitment to provide access to lower-cost, high-quality care, in a way that is most convenient for them.”


An alternative to hospital emergency rooms

People suffering from a potentially life-threatening illness, such as chest pain, should always go to the emergency department, says Atrium Health. A full emergency room is located nearby at Atrium Health University City, 8800 N. Tryon Street.

Patients needing treatment for less serious non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries can get that care at urgent-care centers, including the new University City facility.


Services offered at urgent care facilities

treatment roomAtrium Health urgent-care facilities are staffed by physicians, physician assistants and nurses to treat conditions such as sore throats, earaches, bronchitis, colds, flu, minor cuts, burns, strains and sprains.

“At Atrium Health urgent cares, patients can be seen by a provider whether they are headed home from work or become ill early in the morning or later in the evening,” said Chris Branner, MD, Atrium Health’s specialty medical director of urgent care. “Even better, scheduling an appointment is as simple as a call or click away, or patients can easily drop-in as well.”


Make an appointment online

By reserving a spot online or through Amazon’s Alexa technology – at one of the new urgent care locations, or one of Atrium Health’s 31 other locations – patients have a timeframe of when they will be seen and receive a text message when their appointment time is near. Atrium Health says that this offering makes it more convenient to access care when they need it, on their schedule.
