Penn Med/LGH’s 6th urgent care opens in Lititz

By on September 12, 2018

Penn Medicine Lancaster General Health has opened a sixth urgent care location, at 51 Peters Road in Lititz, following a significant renovation to the outpatient facility.

The urgent care is open 14 hours a day and offers expanded services and treatments not available in a typical urgent care facility, including:

• The ability to administer IV fluid for dehydration
• Treatment rooms that have the capability to observe patients for several hours
• Increased capabilities for asthma treatment
• Increase diagnostics for pain (stomach, leg, shortness of breath)

The Urgent Care is staffed by physicians and advance practice providers on the medical staff at LG Health. Open seven days a week with no appointment necessary, Urgent Care is ideal when medical attention is needed for sprains, cuts, burns, infections or flu symptoms and when patients cannot get in to see their family doctor, such as after hours or on holidays.

“Extended hours are available to provide care when your family doctor isn’t available, especially nights and weekends, when minor illnesses and injuries often occur,” said Stacey Harris, LG Health Director of Operations. “Enhanced services and treatments at this location provide a convenient option for patients who don’t require emergency care.”

Members of the LG Health Urgent Care team and Venture Lititz celebrate the opening of the new facility in Lititz.

The $8.9 million renovation also features new on-site pharmacy services and existing primary and pediatric care, sports medicine, physical therapy and laboratory and imaging services.

“This will be the only facility in Lititz where patients can see a family physician or specialist, have access to care after hours through Urgent Care and immediate access to advanced imaging, physical therapy and lab testing in one location,” said Jan Bergen, President & CEO, LG Health. “To have a center that offers these comprehensive, high-quality services under one roof increases convenience and the overall health and well-being of the Lititz community.”

LG Health has additional Urgent Care locations at Rohrerstown Road., Ephrata, Parkesburg, Lebanon and downtown Lancaster. For more information, visit lghealthurgentcare.org to reserve your spot in line or call 717-627-7687.

Hours for the LG Health Urgent Care at Kissel Hill are Monday through Sunday from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.

    Congrats to Penn Med! I’m sure you’re going to do good work in Lititz. I work in Denver now, but I used to live in Indiana, PA so I now how important and difficult access to healthcare can be in many rural areas of PA.
