St. Luke’s healthcare network continues to expand access to services in Jefferson County as it opens its first urgent care center in the area on August 31. The new location at 832 Arnold Commons in the Arnold Commons Shopping Center will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
“Bringing quality healthcare services close to home is one of the many ways St. Luke’s lives its mission to improve the quality of life for our patients and the community,” said Dr. Robert Paino, network medical director of St. Luke’s Urgent Care Centers. “With the opening of St. Luke’s Urgent Care in Arnold, we can respond to medical needs in a way that is convenient and fits within our patients’ lifestyles.”
The center will provide patients of all ages with prompt treatment for minor medical emergencies such as earaches, cuts and insect bites to more severe injuries like sprains and broken bones. Board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners will be on-site to conduct sports and camp physicals, administer vaccinations and test for viral and bacterial infections such as COVID-19, flu, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and strep throat. The facility will also offer diagnostic radiology services and lab services with a provider order.
Walk-ins are welcome. Patients can check-in and register online via InQuicker at stlukes-stl.com/urgent-care before their visit or request a virtual video visit.
In addition to services for individuals and families, employers in or near Arnold can take advantage of St. Luke’s workplace-related healthcare services to manage occupational and workplace issues including on-the-job illnesses and injuries, workplace screenings, company-wide health initiatives and workers’ compensation care.
St. Luke’s seven other urgent care centers are located throughout St. Louis and St. Charles counties in Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, Ellisville, Fenton, Kirkwood, Ladue and O’Fallon.
St. Luke’s opened the St. Louis area’s first urgent care center in 1982. Because St. Luke’s urgent care centers are hospital-owned, they achieve state and national patient care standards. The centers are also connected through St. Luke’s electronic medical record system allowing for an integrated chart and convenience for the patient and provider.
