Bringing urgent care to the St. Johns Town Center is an excellent way to meet the community's growing healthcare needs in a convenient and centralized location."

CareNow® physicians and other care professionals will provide urgent care - quick care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, such as sprains and strains, minor burns, lacerations, sore throats and flu-like symptoms - as well as physicals, vaccinations, and general diagnostic and treatment services. The clinics will have X-ray and lab services onsite. CareNow® clinics also provide occupational medicine services to local employers, including examinations and treatment of injured workers in worker's compensation cases, pre-employment screenings and drug tests.

"As healthcare continues to evolve, consumers are looking for quality, convenient options for prompt care and treatment," said Dr. Abla Husseini, MD, Medical Director for CareNow® in Jacksonville.
