Due to changing healthcare patterns in the community, effective April 15, 2014 the Emergency Department at St. Joseph Mercy Saline will become a 12-hour Urgent Care. Hours of operation will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week.
An Urgent Care fills the need for non-emergency services such as sprains, wounds requiring stitches, rashes and illnesses such as cold and flu. The Urgent Care will continue to be staffed with the same physicians and staff.
Changing to an Urgent Care enables us to provide an appropriate level of care based on patient need. In addition, outpatient services including CT scans, vascular, physical and occupational therapy, mammography and ultrasound will be consolidated to St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor. All scheduled appointments will continue at St. Joseph Mercy Saline until April 15, 2014.
Some outpatient services will continue, including lab draw services and general diagnostics/x-rays. The community health center onsite will continue as a resource for education, nutrition and preventative health services. Learn what this means for you – then link to the following info:
What will this change mean for you?
- Your copayment when you are seen in an Urgent Care setting rather than an Emergency Department typically will be lower. We encourage you to check with your individual insurance provider.
- If it is determined that you need Emergency Department care once you arrive at the Urgent Care, you will be stabilized and then can be transferred to either St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor or Chelsea Community Hospital (see maps on FAQ).
- If you know you require Emergency Department care, please go directly to either St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor or Chelsea Community Hospital.
- If you come to St. Joseph Mercy Saline for tests, mammograms, CT scans or ultrasounds, your doctor will begin referring your next appointments to St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor or Chelsea Community Hospital.
These decisions are designed to better meet your needs and enable us to sustain our ability to serve the Saline community.
