CAMILLUS, N.Y. — WellNow Urgent Care on Sept. 30 opened the doors to its newest urgent-care center at 3800 W. Genesee St. in the town of Camillus.
The new location is just a half mile up the road from another WellNow clinic at 3504 W. Genesee St. in Camillus. The company calls that its Fairmount center.
When asked if WellNow was seeing enough demand for urgent-care service in that area to warrant a second location, the company replied in an email, “Knowing we are providing another safe, reliable place for the community to easily get COVID-19 testing is reason enough to open our center in Camillus. And we hope it will allow us to provide even greater support to the community as we bring rapid testing the greater western suburbs in the coming weeks.”
WellNow Urgent Care describes itself as “one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent-care providers.”
The new Camillus facility offers treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. “with no appointment needed.”
The urgent-care center will also offer molecular (PCR) and blood antibody serology COVID-19 testing without the need for a referral or prescription.
“We’re proud to open our newest Camillus center and provide easier urgent-care access to those in the Syracuse area,” Dr. John Radford, president of WellNow Urgent Care, said in a statement. “This new location marks the next step in our long-standing commitment to communities in and around Central New York.”
The new 3,500-square-foot center provides “timely” service for ailments such as sprains, burns, colds, and allergies, while also providing on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals. Patients are treated on a walk-in basis but may also visit WellNow.com to check-in online or view up-to-date wait times.
Individuals can also connect with a WellNow provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the company’s telehealth platform, the company noted.
WellNow Urgent Care also offers Central New York employers occupational-medicine services, including DOT/19A physicals and workers’-compensation assistance with respirator-fit exams and audiometry.
WellNow currently operates more than 40 locations across New York and Illinois, including local offices in Cicero, DeWitt, Fayetteville, and Clay, in addition to the two Camillus locations.
