Day Kimball Healthcare Plainfield Walk-In Clinic Re-brands to DKH Express Care

December 15, 2020

Day Kimball Healthcare (DKH) announces that the walk-in clinic at its Plainfield Healthcare Center, located at 12 Lathrop Road in Plainfield, has re-branded to DKH Express Care.

“We are pleased to continue to serve our community by offering convenient, affordable, and efficient on-demand care at DKH Express Care,” said Kyle Kramer, chief executive officer, Day Kimball Healthcare. “With the center open seven days a week, including extended weekday hours, it has never been easier to reach a trusted DKH primary care provider. We believe this rebranding better reflects the type of healthcare services available at the center and raises awareness about the high-quality care DKH offers as we continue to improve our services.”

The Express Care center is open seven days a week. Hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and major holidays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

DKH Express Care provides fast, convenient access to high-quality healthcare for common, non-life-threatening conditions, such as minor injuries and infections. It offers a more affordable option for basic medical services than an emergency facility.

The DKH Express Care's team of dedicated medical professionals includes physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who can treat the entire family with quality care and personal service. Patients can expect a wide-range of services available for low acuity health issues, minor sports or work related injuries, including on-site immunizations for flu and tetanus, and more. The Express Care center features 6 exam rooms with the advantage of adjacent laboratory and imaging services when required.

Patients who have an established primary care provider (PCP) within the Day Kimball Healthcare network will be followed-up with by their provider after their visit to Express Care as needed. And, patients that receive treatment at Express Care but do not have a PCP will be provided with a recommendation to one of Day Kimball Medical Group’s caring practitioners, extending the continuum of care beyond the Express Care visit.

In the case of life threatening medical issues or situations, call 9-1-1 immediately, or report to the nearest emergency facility. The Townsend Emergency Medical Center at Day Kimball Hospital in Putnam has remained open throughout the pandemic and is ready to treat any emergency, 24/7, in a safe, COVID-19 free environment.
