IRMC Urgent Care-Pointe West off to great start
Amber Lease, an X-ray techician, explains to the 130 Indian River Estates residents during their sneak preview on July 9 that in addition to having an X-ray during an Urgent Care visit, they can also bring an order from their primary care physician to have an X-ray, and results will go back to their doctor within the same day.
VERO BEACH - Before officially opening its doors on July 12, more than 830 people toured Indian River Medical Center's new Urgent Care Center in Pointe West at two special open houses.
On July 9, Indian River Estates brought 130 residents to the center over a three-hour period. More than 700 people attended the community open house on July 11.
Services at the Pointe West location include urgent care, lab express, outpatient X-ray services, an upcoming IRMC primary care physician office suite and, upstairs, the Coumadin clinic and physician time-share offices.
As a community service, IRMC's Urgent Care Center in Pointe West provides free blood pressure check-ups for the public with no appointments.
