A new Urgent Care Facility will open its doors in Maysville today.
Fast Pace Urgent Care Clinic opened March 3. Located at 420 W. Martin Luther King Highway across from Burger King in Maysville, the clinic is one of 65 clinics under the Fast Pace brand across Kentucky, Tennessee, and Mississippi.
According to its website, Fast Pace has the goal of meeting each community’s needs and providing care to those who need it.
The Maysville location boasts pediatric care rooms, exam rooms and procedure rooms including x-ray and women’s health.
According to Malinda Rainwater, x-rays at the facility will be available on the same day and there won’t be a long wait.
According to a pamphlet distributed by Urgent Care, the clinic accepts patients for basic treatment including injuries, sickness or pains as well as patients needing prevention such as physicals or occupational health such as drug screenings or health screenings.
The clinic will also feature medical weight loss programs and Department of Transportation physical exams.
According to Director Grant Hart, the facility will be open seven days a week,
“There is no appointment needed,” Hart said. “We see people of all ages, from birth and on.”
Hart said the clinic will feature lab testing, on-site x-rays among other services.
‘We’ll pretty much offer full service,” Hart said.
According to Urgent Care Director of Business Development Jesse Kimes, a significant population in Maysville and the surrounding zip code area were the main reasons for setting up locally.
“You’ve got one other urgent care facility and the hospital, but I think there is enough population here that we can help,” Kimes said.
Kimes said how competition with other facilities will play out isn’t really something that can be predicted.
“Mainly we just want to provide the service and we really felt like there was a need,” Kimes said. “We’re open seven days a week for 12 hours through the week. We just want to be able to provide the service and help people.”
