A group of Black doctors are teaming up to open the first Black-owned Urgent Care Center in Chicago’s Hyde Park.
Premier Health Urgent Care, will be the Southside’s first Urgent Care facility and hopes to provide affordable healthcare to a population in desperate need of it.
“We are happy to open an urgent care in Hyde Park because the community needs it. I see so many urban professionals who either delay or go without care because of time constraints,” said Dr. Reuben C. Rutland.
“No one has 8 hours to wait in the emergency department for a minor illness or the flexibility to wait 3 weeks because their primary care doctor is booked solid. We are here to help fill that gap.”
