urgent careSPRINGFIELD, Ore. — PeaceHealth Medical Group’s new urgent care clinic location is now open for business.

The clinic moved from Sacred Heart Medical Center at RiverBend to the Gateway Marketplace overnight. It’s located at 860 Belt Line Rd. in Springfield.

The first patient checked in at 7:17 a.m. and staff saw close to two dozen people by mid-morning.

The new site offers more parking and should clear up any confusion between the clinic and the hospital’s emergency department. The old location will now house a primary care clinic.

PeaceHealth says the urgent care clinic will be open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.
