Urgent Care-Huntersville holds open house
by Staff Writer
Carolinas HealthCare Urgent Care-Huntersville has moved into a former Blockbuster store at 12905 Rosedale Hill Ave., and will open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
The hospital system moved the urgent-care center from the former CMC-Northcross medical center at 16455 Statesville Road as part of a larger expansion in the north Mecklenburg area. The center’s new name is CMC-Huntersville, and construction crews are converting the former urgent-care space on the ground floor into the region’s first stand-alone, 24-7 emergency department. That larger emergency medical center should open sometime this fall.
Stephen Jones, vice president of Carolinas Physician Network Urgent Care, spoke at Wednesday’s open house. Physicians, physician assistants and nurses at Urgent Care-Huntersville will treat sore throats, ear aches, bronchitis, colds, flu, minor cuts, burns, strains and sprains, as well as perform physicals for school, work or camp, and assist in finding a primary care physician for patients without one.
