CARROLL GARDENS — A new urgent care center is opening in Carroll Gardens with medical services for adults and children.
ProHEALTH Urgent Care, to be located at 330 Court St., is a walk-in clinic with X-Ray and electrocardiogram facilities as well as laboratory services, said marketing director Bob Russo.
The urgent care clinics are a new venture for ProHEALTH Care Associates LLP, a medical group based in Lake Success, N.Y., that offers care in several disciplines, including orthopedics, dermatology and plastic surgery, among others, according to its website.
ProHEALTH has already opened two urgent care centers in the Bronx and Jericho, N.Y. It plans to open more clinics across the city and in Brooklyn neighborhoods such as Greenpoint, Bay Ridge, Brooklyn Heights and Mill Basin, Russo said.
The Carroll Gardens center, which will open in the next few months, will operate seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Some of the urgent care services include treatment for illnesses like fever, flu, cough, cold, strep throat, mild asthma, rashes, sprains and strains, minor fractures and dislocations, insect and animal bites, sexually transmitted diseases, allergic reactions and minor cuts.
While the center will primarily offer urgent care services, its staff of nurses and physicians will be equipped to stabilize patients in emergency situations before they are transported to a hospital or emergency care facility, Russo said.
