Tour the Facility Before it Opens
Medical staff members and their families are invited to tour NCH's new Health Center in Mount Prospect on Saturday, August 6, from 1 – 4 pm. This public open house also includes health education booths and family-friendly activities. The new facility is located at 199 West Rand Road in Mount Prospect.
A trip for medical treatment will become quicker and easier for neighboring residents, as Northwest Community Hospital (NCH) opens its new Health Center in Mount Prospect on August 8. The new 40,000 square-foot building includes immediate care, imaging services, cardiac diagnostic testing, a lab draw site and physician offices.
According to Holly Badal, director of the NCH Immediate Care Centers, the doctors and staff at the Mount Prospect immediate care walk-in clinic can treat most minor injuries, including minor fractures, sprains and strains, as well as upper respiratory infections, flu, earaches, sore throats, nausea, vomiting, and skin irritations — almost anything short of serious trauma or life-threatening situations. NCH Immediate Care Centers give doctors a trusted resource to rely on for patient care after hours.
"Walk-ins will be accepted at the new location and, as always, are welcome at our other immediate care locations, too," explains Badal. NCH Immediate Care Centers are also located in Buffalo Grove, Lake Zurich and Schaumburg.
The new Health Center in Mount Prospect has a robust diagnostic imaging center that includes MRI, CT scans, ultrasound and X-rays. Complete cardiac testing is also offered, such as EKGs, stress tests and echocardiograms. According to Badal, having these services close by is huge for community members who want to access care as quickly and conveniently as possible.
"We offer a full-service lab draw site in Mount Prospect, too," adds Badal. "We can process any type of specimen or test a physician can order for a patient." So, doctors will have convenient access to test results and can depend on the NCH Lab for accurate results.
Convenience is just one part of a broader effort in expanding healthcare options for the community. "The development of the Mount Prospect location is part of our continuing commitment to providing services to our community on its terms—where, how and when it's wanted and needed by residents," says Michael Hartke, executive vice president, NCH Clinics and Regional Services. "And, as our communities continue to grow and change, we'll also evolve so we can continue to meet patients' needs."
