OSF PromptCare’s new expanded daily office hours are effective immediately.

“Utilization of walk-in clinics will only continue to rise, and not just here in the Riverbend region, but across the country,” says Sharon K. Tippett, Director, Physician Practices, OSF Healthcare – Medical Group in Alton.

OSF PromptCare is a walk-in clinic designed to assess and treat sudden minor illnesses and injuries for patients when their primary care provider is busy or unavailable. In December 2023, OSF PromptCare was voted “Best Urgent Care” for the second consecutive year in the “Best of the Best” awards program sponsored by The Telegraph and Hearst Community Media Group.

According to the 2023 US Physician Office Market Report, as published by BusinessWire (a Berkshire Hathaway Company), physician office visit volumes are expected to increase through 2029. Also, according to the report, the overall percentage of patient visits declined in 2020 due to the pandemic and has since risen roughly 10%, with the projection to continue to increase in 2023.
