Offering most convenient non-emergency care in York County
Last June, Southern Maine Medical Center (SMMC) opened Saco’s first Walk-In Care center at its SMHC Physicians office located at 655 Main Street at the corner of Route 1 and Ross Road. The need for convenient, non-emergency care has been so great that SMHC is expanding the hours. Walk-In Care is now open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
“It’s important for everyone to have a Primary Care Physician and we encourage patients to continue visiting their Primary Care Physician to maintain good health,” said SMHC President and CEO Ed McGeachey. “However, when the doctor isn’t available, SMHC’s Walk-In Care provides another option for care and we’re pleased to be able to expand our hours of operation to make access to non-emergency care even more convenient to the community. SMHC continues to provide emergency care at the hospital campus located at One Medical Center Drive in Biddeford all day, every day,” added McGeachey.
Anyone seeking non-emergency treatment is welcome at Walk-In Care. No appointment is necessary. X-ray and lab services are available on site and the Walk-In Care staff treats health issues like:
SMMC has PrimeCare Family Physician offices on Industrial Park Road in Saco as well as in Biddeford and Kennebunk, Pediatric Physician offices in Saco and Kennebunk and Internal Medicine Physician offices located in Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach and Kennebunk.
