Physicians Prompt Care Health Clinic Opens in Orland Park JEWEL-OSCO(R)
Date:7/29/2009


FRANKLIN PARK, Ill., July 29 /PRNewswire/ -- JEWEL-OSCO, a leading Midwest food and drug retailer, has partnered with Tinley Park-based Physicians Prompt Care Centers to launch Physicians Prompt Care Express, a convenient new health care option designed to meet the needs of busy southwestern suburban families and customers on the go.

Board-certified Prompt Care Express physicians will offer high-quality, convenient and affordable medical services from a newly-constructed health clinic inside of the Jewel-Osco, located at 9352 W. 159th St, in Orland Park. The new, in-store health facility marks Jewel-Osco's first point of entry into Chicagoland's retail medical clinic business. It establishes the second ambulatory care site operated by Prompt Care Physician Centers LLC.

"Physicians Prompt Care Express will offer a timely and less-expensive alternative to a hospital's emergency room. Our services can be helpful for individuals who are pressed for time, and for adults and children who do not have a regular physician or whose primary care physician is unavailable," said Dr. James Richardson, MD, an owner.

Just steps away from the full service Jewel-Osco Pharmacy, Prompt Care Express physicians will provide acute medical care to walk-in patients and treat a variety of maladies, including coughs and colds, fractures, sprains, headaches and eye injuries. In addition, drug and alcohol occupational health testing and physical exams needed for work, school and sports camps will be available at the in-store clinic. And because the clinic will be staffed by physicians, patients will be able to see a doctor at a time that is most convenient for their personal schedule, including evening and weekend hours.

"Jewel-Osco is proud to partner with Physicians Prompt Care Centers to bring a unique health care experience to Orland Park and the surrounding communities," said Chris Dimos, RPh, president, Jewel-Osco Pharmacies. "Access to quality and affordable health care is one of the top issues facing our communities today.

In integrating the new medical clinic into our store, we aim to eliminate some of the barriers - like cost, work and school schedules, and even proximity - that can block our customers' ability to receive needed medial attention."

Physicians Prompt Care Express will accept most major insurance plans including Medicare. Cash paying customers can expect to pay less than the total cost of a typical hospital emergency room visit.

"Given the need to find value in all aspects of spending and the realities of today's busy lifestyles, consumers are looking for simple, more convenient ways to access care for routine medical conditions. Physicians Prompt Care Express looks forward to meeting these needs for Jewel-Osco's customers as well as the Orland-area community at large," Richardson said.

Physician Prompt Care Express services will be available Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. and between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Appointments are unnecessary and you will be able to pre-register for your visit on-line saving time.
