Baptist Health Urgent Care Announces New Location in Benton

‭BENTON, Ark. – Baptist Health has announced it is opening of its fourth urgent care ‭center in Benton. The center is scheduled to open Oct. 30 and will be located at 824 Military Rd. next to Arby’s.

‭Baptist Health, in a joint venture with Urgent Team, one of the Southeast’s largest independent operators of urgent and family care centers, currently has urgent care centers in North Little Rock, ‭Bryant and Jacksonville.

‭“Benton is a fast-growing community and providing convenient and affordable care for urgent ‭but non-emergency needs is a primary focus we are intent on providing throughout Arkansas,” said Troy Wells, president and CEO of Baptist Health.

‭Baptist Health’s expansion into urgent care provides unscheduled access to care for patients, as ‭well as supports Baptist Health physicians who want to provide an after-hours option to their patients. This new urgent care center will provide Benton residents urgent and family care, as well as wellness
‭services, on a walk-in basis.

Urgent care is quicker and less expensive than an emergency room for receiving treatment for pain or conditions that are nonlife-threatening. With no appointment needed, urgent care treats patients ‭for a variety of medical needs, including:

• Asthma and allergies
• Flu, colds and viral illnesses
‭• Bites, stings, allergic reactions
• Sprains, strains, broken bones
‭• Diarrhea, nausea and vomiting
• Urinary tract infections
‭• Ear and Eye injuries
• Skin conditions
‭• Burns
• School, sports and wellness physicals
‭• Immunizations and vaccinations

‭‭Baptist Health Urgent Care-Benton will be open seven days a week: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, 1 to 6 p.m. Most insurance plans, including ‭TRICARE, Medicare and Medicaid, as well as cash and credit card, will be accepted.
