NORTH GREENBUSH, NY – WellNow Urgent Care, one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent care providers, and urgent care partner St. Peter’s Health Partners announced today they will open the doors to their newest center in North Greenbush on Wednesday, June 2, 2021.

“Illnesses and injuries show up at the most inconvenient times – a collision on the soccer field, a tick bite while hiking, the sudden need for quick PCR results,” said John Radford, M.D., President at WellNow Urgent Care. “Together with our partner, St. Peter’s Health Partners, we’re proud to bring convenient care to the North Greenbush community to help people get treated and get back to their lives within 45 minutes.”
“Together with our partner WellNow Urgent Care, we’re thrilled to welcome new patients to our North Greenbush center and to welcome back patients who visited our previous location on Empire Drive,” said James K. Reed, M.D., President and CEO of St. Peter’s Health Partners. “Supporting the health of the community is our greatest priority, and we take great pride in being a go-to destination for fast, efficient, expert care and same and next day COVID-19 PCR testing.”
