CLEVELAND – University Hospitals (UH) will open one new urgent care and relocate another at the end of this month. The urgent cares will be a welcome addition to both communities and reduce their travel time when seeking medical attention. The new locations are part of the larger plan to deliver healthcare closer to where patients live, shop and work.
UH Urgent Care Streetsboro will move from the UH Streetsboro Health Center to 9449 State Route 14, Streetsboro, OH 44241. The relocated facility will open on Monday, January 29. The new location is in the heart of Streetsboro on a highly traveled road, near the corner of Market Square Drive & Route 14, just northwest of McDonald’s. The move was planned to increase convenient access to high-quality healthcare services for Streetsboro and surrounding area residents.
The new UH Urgent Care Shaker Heights will open on Thursday, February 1, and is located at 16601 Chagrin Blvd, Shaker Heights, OH 44120. This new location is adjacent to a popular shopping center at the corner of Chagrin Blvd. and Lee Rd. in front of Heinen’s Grocery Store, making access to quality healthcare more convenient than ever for surrounding area residents.
All UH Urgent Care facilities, including these two new locations, are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week, with special hours on some holidays.
“Our UH Urgent Care delivery model aims to provide the most convenient and valuable care for our patients,” explained UH Chief Operating Officer Paul Hinchey, MD, MBA. “Having easy access to urgent care locations provide a more affordable option than emergency departments for patients who don’t have a primary care physician but need immediate, non-life-threating medical attention. By offering more urgent care locations, we can relieve the burden on emergency departments and reduce wait times so our emergency medicine teams can focus on critical cases.”
The new facilities will be equipped with advanced medical technology and staffed by experienced healthcare professionals dedicated to providing compassionate, efficient, and personalized care to patients of all ages.
UH Urgent Care President Lee Resnick, MD, looks forward to the expansion.
"Our primary goal is to reimagine urgent care for Northeast Ohio by removing obstacles and easing access to care while delivering exceptional patient experiences,” Dr. Resnick said. “The expansion of UH Urgent Care in Northeast Ohio is a significant step towards fulfilling this commitment. By increasing access to urgent care services, we aim to make a positive impact on the lives of individuals and families throughout the region, providing them with the prompt and effective care they deserve in retail locations where they live, shop and work.
University Hospitals is dedicated to improving healthcare accessibility and meeting the evolving needs of the Northeast Ohio community. The expansion of UH Urgent Care locations will contribute to this mission, ensuring residents have easy access to high-quality care when and where they need it.
UH Urgent Care is being operated as part of a joint venture with WellStreet Urgent Care. To support the expansion, UH Urgent Care will be bringing hundreds more healthcare jobs to the Northeast Ohio market. The health system is currently seeking experienced physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other medical professionals looking for consistent, meaningful work, to join the team.
