The new St. Luke’s CARE NOW, located at 201 W. Centre Street, Mahanoy City, is open for business and welcomes new patients for walk-in medical care for minor illnesses and injuries. St. Luke’s Physical Therapy relocated into the same building as the walk-in center. It had been across the street from the new location for many years.
CARE NOW hours, including X-ray, are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Lab services are open from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Physical therapy will be available from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 7 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday and Friday.
St. Luke’s CARE NOW offers fast, convenient care for colds, flu, sinus infections, sprains, strains, broken bones and more – especially when a primary care doctor can’t see the patient immediately. St. Luke’s CARE NOW also offers walk-in X-ray and laboratory services and occupational medicine services to employers.
St. Luke’s CARE NOW facilities are not intended to replace an individual’s primary care physician or manage chronic health concerns. “St. Luke’s CARE NOW centers are an extension of the local primary care offices,” says Robert Dolansky, DO, St. Luke’s CARE NOW medical director. “We can take care of urgent medical needs when the patient’s primary care physician is not available. We will then get the patient back to their primary care physician for routine care or help the patient establish care with a primary care physician.”
In addition to the new Mahanoy City location, St. Luke’s has CARE NOW centers in Allentown, Bethlehem, Brodheadsville, Center Valley, Easton, Hamburg, Jim Thorpe, Lehighton, Macungie, Mahanoy City, New Ringgold, Palmerton, Pennsburg, Quakertown, Whitehall and Wind Gap, Pennsylvania; and Belvidere, Clinton and Phillipsburg, New Jersey.
