SANTA FE, N.M. — Santa Feans will soon have an alternative to an emergency room visit.
Railyard Urgent Care, which bills itself as “Santa Fe’s first walk-in-only urgent care clinic,” will hold its grand opening Jan. 5, at 831 S. St. Francis Drive, just north of the intersection with Cerrillos Road.
“Railyard Urgent Care fills a critical void for residents of Santa Fe, who lack access to quality care on a convenient walk-in basis,” Dr. Victor Sherman, who is opening the clinic with colleague Dr. Troy Watson, said in a press release.
The clinic will offer urgent care services to children and adults, as well as on-site labs and digital X-rays every day of the week. The services include wellness and precentative medicine, seasonal care, and flu shot vaccinations. Occupational health services, including pre-employment drug testing, physical exams, post-accident care and X-ray testing, are also offered.
The clinic will be located in a brand new state-of-the-art 2,700-square foot building that cost $1.1 million to construct. With nine exam rooms, the doctors say that the clinic, open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day, will be able to treat up to 120 patients per day, according to the release.
The clinic will open with eight full-time and five part-time employees. Plans are to add another four staff members in the next two years.
During its grand opening Jan. 5, Railyard Urgent Care will provide no-cost check-ups on a first-come, first-serve basis.
