HOUSTON (October 09, 2018)

Residents of Greater Heights, Oak Forest, Garden Oaks, Lazybrook, Timbergrove, Woodland Heights and surrounding communities in need of after-hours care for non-life-threatening illnesses and minor injuries now have a new option for immediate diagnosis and treatment –Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Greater Heights.

Staffed by board-certified family medicine physicians, Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Greater Heights combines the comfort of a primary care practice with the convenience of extended office hours and walk-in access.

“It’s a situation we’ve all faced – an illness or injury that needs attention after your physician’s regular business hours,” Jennifer Zimmerman, chief operating officer for Memorial Hermann Medical Group. “Instead of waiting it out, or incurring an emergency room charge for a minor issue, patients can now seek immediate care at our new Urgent Care Center.”

Modeled after sister facilities in Spring, Friendswood and Tanglewood, Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Greater Heights is capable of treating patients as young as six months old, and offers an array of services for non-life-threatening conditions such as flu, fever, earaches, insect bites, sprains, simple fractures, eye injuries and cuts requiring stitches. X-ray imaging and laboratory services are also offered on-site, as well as sports and school physicals.

As an added convenience, the facility offers  online check-in so patients can reserve their place in line ahead of time. Patients also are able to track their appointment so they know when to arrive, reducing unnecessary time in the waiting room.

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Greater Heights is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is located at 300 North Loop West, Suite 100, Houston, TX 77008.
