Physicians Immediate Care announced the grand opening of its first clinic in Kendall County, providing Oswego residents a convenient solution to their urgent and unexpected health care needs. The new 3,500 square-foot clinic at 2322 Route 34 (in front of Walmart) is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends. The walk-in clinic is fully equipped with X-ray, lab testing and seven exam rooms, including a pediatric room and two trauma rooms, for treating non-life threatening injuries and illnesses and performing minor surgical procedures.
“Questions about health concerns can create a lot of anxiety. People worry about things like ‘Is it a virus?,’ ‘Do I need stitches?’ or ‘Is it serious?’” said Dr. Kathleen Talamayan, one of the on-site physicians at Physicians Immediate Care in Oswego. “Some injuries and illnesses just can’t wait. When someone in Oswego can’t get into their family doctor and it isn’t severe enough for the ER, we’re here to help.”
“We’re excited to come to Oswego with a fantastic location right in the heart of the village’s retail corridor, which is so convenient for area residents,” said Stan Blaylock, CEO of Physicians Immediate Care. “Our patients count on us for remarkable care, long hours and ideal locations. Convenience also means great online and mobile tools that make health care easier to use and more transparent.”
