SSM Health Care employees now have a fourth option for non-emergent, after-hours treatment with the opening of SSM Urgent Care’s newest location at 1551 Wall Street in St. Charles. The center is located just east of Sam’s Club and Walmart off the Zumbehl exit at I-70.
Like all SSM Urgent Care sites, the new location serves patients from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week, including most holidays. Patients may choose to use SSM’s online check-in system at ssmhealth.com/urgent to reduce waits once they arrive at the center.
SSM Urgent Care is designed for patients with minor medical needs who can’t wait to be seen by their primary care doctor and whose condition does not warrant an emergency room visit.
The SSM ExclusiveChoice co-pay for urgent care services is $50, versus the $100 co-pay for using emergency department services — making it a more affordable option for the treatment of minor injuries and illness.
SSM Urgent Care’s other locations are at Manchester and Brentwood Blvd. in Brentwood, Dorsett Village in Maryland Heights and SSM St. Joseph Medical Park in St. Peters. For more information about SSM Urgent Care, visit ssmhealth.com/urgent.
