A new medical clinic is planned for Alton later this year. MedExpress will construct a walk-in clinic along the Homer Adams Parkway next to Jimmy John’s and plans to open this summer. The property was recently cleared and the company has obtained a building permit from the city of Alton.
The company offers urgent care for minor health issues and other basic treatments for non-life threatening conditions along with some medical testing. It will be open seven days a week, 12 hours a day. MedExpress is currently expanding into the Metro East and is also planning to open new clinics in Collinsville, Fairview Heights and Swansea as well as into Peoria and Quincy. MedExpress operates in 16 other states, with home offices in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
