Western Maryland Health System opens South Cumberland Urgent Care location

October 3rd, 2018 by WCBC Radio

Adding to an already thriving pair of urgent care options, Western Maryland Health System (WMHS) officially opened its latest location on Industrial Boulevard in Cumberland on Monday, October 1st.
The South Cumberland location becomes the third center to be operated by WMHS, which offers the urgent care centers for patients who experience a minor injury or sudden non-life-threatening symptoms of illness outside of regular clinic hours.
All of the WMHS urgent care centers treat minor ailments such as tooth pain, strains and sprains, cuts needing stitches, sore throat, lower back pain, eye redness and irritation, bites, stings, rashes and the cold and flu.
After a visit to the urgent care center, a follow-up typically consists of treatment at home as well as visiting a primary doctor within a few days. If the patient is without a primary care provider, the team at WMHS is currently accepting new patients and will be happy to speak with them.
“The new South Cumberland Urgent Care Center is the first in Cumberland to offer its residents an alternative rather than going to the emergency room for those dealing with a minor illness and injury,” says Barry Ronan, WMHS president and CEO. The new location, along with the other established centers in Frostburg and Short Gap, often offer shorter wait times than emergency care. Treatment can also be less expensive at the WMHS urgent care centers, whether the patient has health insurance or not.
Western Maryland Health System treats all patients regardless of their ability to pay for services. Staff members will obtain information from the patients to determine if financial assistance is available.
The South Cumberland center is located at 1050 Industrial Boulevard in Suite 17 on the far left of the plaza. The center is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. and can be reached at 240-964-9300. For more information, log on to www.wmhs.com.
