GLENS FALLS, NY — Today, WellNow Urgent Care℠—one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent care providers—and St. Peter’s Health Partners have opened the doors to their newest center in Glens Falls. Located at 202 Broad Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801, the new facility offers treatments for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. with no appointment needed. A second facility operated by WellNow and St. Peter’s Health Partners will open in Troy on December 23.
“Through our joint venture with St. Peter’s Health Partners, we’ve been able to grow the urgent care presence significantly throughout the Capital Region in just over a year,” said WellNow Urgent Care President John Radford, M.D. “With the opening of our sixth center in Glens Falls, and with a seventh location coming soon in Troy, we’re proud to offer the local community even more convenience and peace of mind for all of their urgent care and COVID-19 testing needs.”
“Providing high-quality and accessible urgent care services to residents across the Capital Region is essential for the overall health and well-being of our community,” said James K. Reed, M.D., President and CEO of St. Peter’s Health Partners. “As the pandemic continues to impact lives, we remain dedicated, together with our partner WellNow Urgent Care, to providing even more options for immediate medical treatment, as well as serving as a dedicated COVID-19 testing resource.”
The new center provides timely service for ailments such as sprains, burns, colds and allergies while also providing on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals.
