Less than two months after IU Health Arnett opened its new facility in West Lafayette, it’s closing an urgent care center at another location.
Executives say consolidating the Greenbush Street urgent care service into the locations on the south side of Lafayette and in West Lafayette will bring about efficiencies that better serve patients.
They also say the vacant space at the Greenbush facility could be used to expand primary care services.
The changes are designed to enable IU Health Arnett to adjust staff at the two remaining urgent care centers, with the goal of improving processes and shorter patient wait times.
The urgent care center located in West Lafayette offers extended hours from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m. every day and 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. on holidays. The Urgent Care Center located on the south side of Lafayette at 1 Walter Scholer Drive, is open 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. daily.
