Morris Hospital Shortens Hours at Immediate and Convenient Care Clinics
May 1, 2020, MORRIS, IL – In response to decreased volumes over the past several weeks, Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers is shortening the hours of operation at its four Immediate Care and Convenient Care walk-in clinics located in Channahon, Diamond-Coal City, Morris, and Yorkville. The change in hours is expected to be temporary and does not affect the scope of services offered.
Effective May 3, the new hours for the immediate care and convenient care walk-in clinics at the Morris Hospital Ridge Road Campus in Channahon, Morris Hospital Diamond-Coal City Campus, and Diagnostic & Rehabilitative Center on Gore Road in Morris will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
Walk-in convenient care services at the Morris Hospital Yorkville Campus will be available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. The Yorkville location will be closed on weekends.
All four clinics have remained open during the COVID pandemic in order to provide essential services for individuals needing care for minor illness and injuries, including cuts, sprains, earaches, asthma, headaches, back problems, bites and stings, skin rashes, eye irritation, allergies and allergic reactions, urinary tract, and bladder infections, as examples. Those seeking care for respiratory illness are offered visits by phone or video in order to maintain a safe environment inside the facilities.
All four locations have several safety measures in place, including screening checkpoints upon entering the facilities, masking requirements for patients and staff, video visits for anyone with respiratory illness, and special cleaning measures and precautions in the waiting areas.
“Safety has always been a top priority for our organization,” says Charlotte Albinson, M.D., Medical Director of Immediate Care and Occupational Medicine at Morris Hospital & Healthcare Centers. “We’ve added many additional safety measures over the past several weeks so that we can continue to provide essential services to the community while making our patients feel safe. We don’t want people to miss or avoid getting the care that they might need.”
