Louisville, Ky. (September 1, 2016) – KentuckyOne Health has opened a new Sports Medicine Urgent Care Clinic at Medical Center Jewish Northeast, part of KentuckyOne Health. The clinic opened today and is located at 2401 Terra Crossing Boulevard in Louisville. The clinic will offer the best after-hours orthopedic care and provide acute outpatient services to injured athletes in need of semi-emergency or after-hours care.
"The new clinic will provide specialized care in an efficient manner, offering patients a high level of sports medicine expertise” said Neil Patil, MD, Shea Orthopedic Group, part of KentuckyOne Health. This clinic will be the best outlet for athletes with injuries like sprains or fractures that require immediate attention, but may not warrant an emergency room visit.”
