The Ark City Clinic will soon add to its operating hours to provide urgent care services for walk-in appointments

Starting June 4, the clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and will have providers available to see patients.

The providers will see both call-in and walk-in appointments. The clinic will accept all insurance companies and will have options available for patients that do not have insurance.

This change is occurring as a result of the need for walk-in appointments in Arkansas City, and South Central Medical Center hopes this new option will relieve some of the strain placed on patients who need immediate care.

SCKMC would like to urge the public to know the difference between emergency room care and urgent care. If you or someone in your care is needing minor medical assistance such as treatment of non-threatening allergic reactions, mild fever, animal or insect bites, or minor physical injury (cuts, sprains, strains, or broken bones) please seek care from the walk-in clinic.

If severe or life-threatening symptoms occur, such as high fever, severe pain in the chest or abdomen, difficulty breathing, severe burns, or signs of heart attack (tightness in the chest or arms, nausea, sudden dizziness), stroke (numbness, confusion, trouble seeing), or poisoning, please contact emergency services or visit the emergency room, open 24 hours daily.

The Ark City Clinic is located at 510 West Radio Lane. If you have questions about the change in hours, or to set up and appointment please call the clinic at (620) 442-2100.
