As of June 5, the north branch of Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care will be open on Sundays. Due to increased demand, the Weaverville location will see patients Sundays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. The newly added hours allow Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care to see patients with non-life threatening injuries and illnesses seven days a week at that center.
“We’ve seen a significant increase in patient visits at Sisters of Mercy’s north location,” said CEO Tim Johnston. To respond to the needs of our Weaverville community, we will offer medical care seven days a week there. Sundays in particular force people who need medical attention to consider the expense of an emergency room visit when primary care options aren’t available for them. Urgent care is a perfect alternative to an ER visit, at a fraction of the cost. We look forward to providing this alternative for our neighbors in Weaverville.”
Sisters of Mercy Urgent Care offers affordable treatment of non-life threatening illnesses and injuries by licensed medical professionals at four locations in Asheville, Weaverville and Brevard with a fifth location opening in east Asheville in early fall. To date, the local, not-for-profit organization has served more than a million patients in the WNC region. No appointment is necessary, and the Asheville locations are open seven days a week, 362 days a year, except for Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas. The west location has the most extensive hours and is open Mon.-Fri.: 7 a.m.-10 p.m. and Sat. & Sun.: 9 a.m.-7 p.m. More information about hours and locations can be found at www.urgentcares.org
