Excelsior Springs Hospital and Price Chopper to Open First Express Clinic in Excelsior Springs
Excelsior Springs Hospital, affiliated with North Kansas City Hospital, is announcing it will open ESH Health Express in the Excelsior Springs Price Chopper Grocery Store, located at 1645 Kearney Road, in January.
“About 50 percent of Express visits occur on evenings, weekends and holidays when patients may not be able to get an appointment with their primary care provider, and about half of the patients seen do not have a primary care physician,” said CEO Sally Nance. “Our goal is to be able to provide this service, close to home, for all residents in Excelsior Springs and surrounding communities”, she added.
“We are excited to work with Excelsior Springs Hospital so that they can better serve local residents…making it easier for them to get the health care they need”, said John McKeever, Founder and Executive of McKeever Enterprises. “I am so proud to have had a wonderful relationship with the Hospital for over 20 years”, he added.
ESH Health Express will be staffed by a nurse practitioner, who can diagnose and write prescriptions for com-mon illnesses like strep throat and sinus infections, as well as treat minor wounds and administer common vaccines. Medical oversight will be provided by primary care physicians from Excelsior Springs Hospital. Open seven days a week with extended evening hours, the clinic will provide non-emergency care services for adults and children 18 months and older.
