Dr. Terry Matthews & Catherine Matthews officially announced today the open date of their newest Lansing Urgent Care facility located on Marsh Rd. near Saginaw Hwy in Bath Township will be Monday, May 16th.
With their five current facilities thriving, they wanted to position the newest clinic in the northeast region of Lansing to more broadly service the families and businesses of the Greater Lansing area. Their new location will be located next to the MSU Federal Credit Union on Marsh Rd near Saginaw Hwy in Haslett at 16945 Marsh Rd Haslett MI 48840.
The new facility is made possible by Lansing Urgent Care’s ongoing mission to provide individuals and families with access to prompt, affordable and quality healthcare. When Dr. Matthews was asked why they decided to open a sixth clinic, he responded “We've been caring for patients for almost 10 years in the Greater Lansing area. We realized to better service the region, Bath Township and the surrounding communities such as Laingsburg and Perry needed an option closer to their homes and businesses. Another motivator to open our sixth facility is that primary care providers are often overworked since large numbers of primary care providers are retiring. As a result, patients often experience a delay in seeing their own doctor or they resort to a very expensive ER visit at the moment they need care. Roughly 80% of ER visits are non-emergent and could be managed in an urgent care saving patients both time and money. For example, ER visit length is often north of 3-4 hours whereas door to door times at Lansing Urgent Care average just 47 minutes! Also, for non-emergent issues Lansing Urgent Care patients can expect to save hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars compared to an ER visit!!! This new location, including our now 24/7 clinic on Clippert St. near Frandor, ensures the entire Greater Lansing Community can access urgent care services within minutes of their home or office.”
Dr. Matthews and Catherine Matthews, owners of Lansing Urgent Care, also express their gratitude to their incredible patient base and their superb staff, without whom none of this would be possible.
