The latest urgent care center to come to the Roanoke area is now seeing patients in the Hollins area.
MedExpress Urgent Care recently announced the opening of a new center at 5610 Williamson Road.
The walk-in center — where patients can get immediate medical attention for broken bones, cuts, and illnesses such as the flu — will be open 12 hours a day, seven days a week. The Hollins center is the third in the Roanoke area for MedExpress, just one of several such providers to enter the market recently.
It’s all part of a trend in which more urgent care businesses are coming to the Roanoke market, as former health care reporter Sarah Bruyn Jones reported last year in this story.
