Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health opened a seventh urgent care location, at 432 Cloverleaf Rd. Elizabethtown, PA, following a renovation to the Norlanco outpatient facility on Tuesday, Nov. 26.
The Urgent Care is open 14 hours a day and offers services and treatments not available in a typical urgent care facility, including:
- The ability to administer IV fluid for dehydration
- Two treatment rooms that have the capability to monitor patients for several hours
- Increased capabilities for asthma treatment
- Increased diagnostics for pain (stomach, leg, shortness of breath)
- Concussion screening
The Urgent Care is staffed by physicians and advance practice providers on the medical staff at LG Health. Open seven days a week with no appointment necessary, Urgent Care is ideal when medical attention is needed for sprains, cuts, burns, infections or flu symptoms and when patients cannot get in to see their family doctor, such as after hours or on holidays.
“Urgent care services and treatments at this location provide a convenient option for patients who do not require emergency care,” said Stacey Harris, LG Health Director of Operations. “Extended hours are available to provide care when your family doctor isn’t available, especially nights and weekends, when minor illnesses and injuries often occur.”
The outpatient facility also features new behavioral health and cardiac services. Existing physical therapy services currently provided at the outpatient center have also been expanded following the renovation.
“This is the only facility in Elizabethtown where patients can see a family physician or specialist, have access to care after hours through Urgent Care and immediate access to advanced imaging, physical therapy and lab testing in one location,” said Jan Bergen, President & CEO, LG Health. “To have a single location that offers these comprehensive, high-quality services under one roof increases convenience and improves that health of the Elizabethtown community.”
LG Health has additional Urgent Care locations at Rohrerstown Rd., Ephrata, Parkesburg, Lebanon, Lititz and downtown Lancaster.
Hours for the LG Health Urgent Care at Norlanco are Monday through Sunday from 7 am to 9 pm. For more information, visit lghealthurgentcare.org to reserve your spot in line or call 717-627-7687.
