ALBANY, GA (WALB) – So often, it seems as though you don't feel sick, or your kids don't get a fever until after the doctor's office closes.  Instead of going to the Emergency Room, or waiting until the next day for treatment, there's now another option.

Phoebe now operates a QuickCare Clinic on Highway 19 North in Lee County.  It's open after normal business hours, from six to 10 PM on weeknights.

No appointments are needed, and there is almost never a wait.   It's a way to encourage people to seek treatment after hours away from the ER for minor health problems.

Tina Halverson said, "We wanted to create a service for the community that can also stop that gap where right after hours, you get off from work and the child is sick, got a little bit of an ear infection and you don't want to go to the emergency room for something like that, but at the same time, you really don't need to wait until the next day."

Patients with emergency medical conditions should continue to use the emergency room, or primary health provider.
