Highlands Announces After Hours Care in Prestonsburg

March 21, 2019

Prestonsburg, KY – Highlands Health System is proud to announce the opening of a new After Hours Clinic in Prestonsburg, Ky. After surveying the community about their health needs, hosting focus groups, and accessing the long distances families must drive for after hours care, Highlands made a goal of opening an After Hours location within Archer Clinic on University Drive. Prestonsburg After Hours at Archer Clinic is the fourth After Hours Clinic operated by Highlands, following established locations in Paintsville, Salyersville, and Harold. The clinic is set to open on April 1st.

 
After Hours Care treats patients of all ages and offers a number of services, including treatment for minor illness, minor injury, sprains, laceration repair and more. After Hours also offers IV hydration, medication administration, and lab services. Lab testing, such as flu, RSV, urinanalysis, pregnancy, and rapid strep can also be done on-site.
 
The facility works in conjunction with other Highlands family physicians to provide an extension of their practices after normal business hours. Instead of waiting for an appointment, taking time off work and delaying care, After Hours can provide affordable treatment on a walk-in basis.

The Prestonsburg After Hours location is conveniently located on the second floor of the Archer Clinic Building on University Drive in Prestonsburg.  Highlands After Hours Care is open in all locations Monday – Friday from 5-9pm, and Saturday – Sunday from 10am – 5pm.
