Lebanon and the surrounding area will soon have a new access point for health care. In just a few weeks, CoxHealth Lebanon Urgent Care will start serving the community by treating illnesses and injuries that should be addressed right away, but aren’t severe enough for a trip to the emergency room.

The new facility, which opens in October at 1216 Deadra Dr. in Lebanon, will treat issues such as cuts and lacerations, minor burns, allergic reactions, infections, fractures and eye injuries. It will be staffed by board-certified physicians and nurse practitioners.

“We’ve found a desire in the Lebanon area for a higher level of care that keeps families close to home, and we wanted to meet that need,” says Amanda Hedgpeth, vice president of Clinical Services at CoxHealth. “With CoxHealth Center Lebanon located nearby, this addition really offers a comprehensive way for people to receive care for many issues, ranging from minor illnesses to more severe injuries.”

No appointments are necessary to be seen at the urgent care, which will be open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. It will also offer Save My Spot, a program that enables patients to request a time they’d like to be seen.
