The newly constructed Sarah Bush Lincoln Walk-In Clinic in Mattoon will open at 7 am, Monday, May 22, at 200 Dettro Drive, just south of its current location.
The new facility doubles the size of the older clinic and will better accommodate the volume of people who seek medical care in this setting. It maintains the same hours, 7 am to 7 pm, Monday through Friday and 8 am to 3 pm, Saturday and Sunday. Nearly all insurances are accepted at Sarah Bush Lincoln facilities.
The new facility is approximately 5,000 square feet and has a much large reception area, additional exam rooms and has a laboratory and X-ray machine.
Clinic providers treat people ages 6 months and older for medical conditions that need care right away, but are not life-threatening. All SBL Walk-In clinics also offer diagnostic services like X-ray and simple blood and urine tests. Walk-in clinics are not intended to treat chronic conditions or serious medical conditions. People who appear with severe symptoms will be referred to the Emergency Department.
Walk-in clinic personnel often treat:
- Common, non-life-threatening illnesses in children and adults
- Cold and flu
- Minor cuts or lacerations needing stitches
- Sprains, strains and simple fractures
- Earaches, sore throats and coughs
- Bladder infections
- Asthma and similar conditions that require breathing treatments
People experiencing any of the following symptoms are encouraged to go straight to the nearest Emergency Department:
- Chest pain
- Stroke-like symptoms
- Shortness of breath
- Severe abdominal pain
- Severe head injury
- Sudden, severe headache
