WellNow Urgent Care Opens New Center in Webster
COVID-19 testing, treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses is provided seven days a week
New center marks the company’s fifth location in the Rochester area
WEBSTER, NY — Today, WellNow Urgent Care℠, one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent care providers, opened the doors to its newest center in Webster. Located at 1867 Empire Boulevard, Webster, NY 14580, the new facility offers treatments for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. with no appointment needed. The opening of the Webster center marks WellNow’s fifty-first location, and its fifth in the Greater Rochester area.
“We’re excited to expand our reach to care for even more communities in Rochester,” said WellNow Urgent Care president John Radford, M.D. “As COVID-19 continues to impact lives, we remain dedicated to providing accessible and timely urgent care services – including COVID-19 testing – to support and improve the overall health of the community.”
The new Webster center provides timely service for ailments such as sprains, burns, colds and allergies while also providing on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals. COVID-19-related services, including molecular PCR swab testing and antibody testing, are also offered, and rapid antigen testing is expected to be available at the Webster center soon. Patients can book an appointment online to be seen but do not need a referral or prescription to receive COVID-19 testing. Urgent care services are treated on a walk-in basis, but patients may also visit WellNow.com to check in online or view up-to-date wait times. WellNow accepts most insurance, including Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis and Veterans Affairs TriWest.
