If you are currently between primary care physicians or need to receive medical attention for any reason there is a local facility available to you. Lisa Jones with IU Health shared the details with WKVI, “We have urgent care in the LifePlex building and we do feel like its a secret that not many know about. It’s not very far from the folks here in Knox and this area, it takes about 20 minutes.”
The facility treats individuals of all ages for injuries and illnesses. They offer X-Rays, CT scans and ultra sound services. They can assist with strains, sprains, lacerations and abrasions. Jones said the staff does their best to provide care for anything patients feel requires immediate attention and can provide results within the same day.
Jones explained that the facility also offers physicals for students and department of transportation employees,“This time of year we’re doing a lot of sports physicals as kids are getting ready to go back to school and those are actually just a cash service for $25 and they get their complete IHSAA Physical done and then we also offer D.O.T physicals.”
The IU Health Urgent Care facility in LifePlex is open Monday through Friday from 9 am until 7 pm Eastern. On the weekends they are open from 9 am until 3 pm Eastern. They are open every day with the exception of major holidays when their office is closed. Walk-ins are welcome, no appointments are required.
