PRMC expands service lines with Urgent Care and Health Center

Pratt Regional Medical Center today announced plans to open a new urgent care and health center in Pratt, located at 1600 East 1st Street in Pratt, in early 2021. PRMC Urgent Care and Health Center will offer medical care with no referral or appointment necessary. Patients can visit PRMC Urgent Care for all non-life-threatening, but still urgent, illness or injury, including colds, flu, infections, fractures, cuts, rashes and allergic reactions. The Urgent Care center will be open 7 days per week.


“Our priority at PRMC Urgent Care is providing our patients with high quality medical care that works with their busy schedules,” said Tammy Smith VP and Chief Nursing Officer. PRMC Urgent Care will not replace the need for a primary care provider and will provide referrals to establish with local providers as needed for follow-up. PRMC Urgent Care will provide convenient, quality care that not only fits into the patient's schedule but is also an affordable alternative to the emergency room.


Susan Page, President and CEO shared, "We wanted to address that request from the community. The addition of an urgent care was the most requested service line during the 2018 community health needs assessment.” Access to care is an important priority in preventing a minor issue from becoming a more serious health concern.


The goal is to be open in early 2021, and construction is already underway to transform the building, for the Urgent Care as well as infusion and wound care services currently offered through Ambulatory Services on the 3rd floor at the PRMC Main Campus.
