New Mercy-GoHealth center coming to East Sunshine

Posted online

Mercy Springfield Communities is rolling out its third co-branded urgent care center in the Queen City in less than a year.

Spokeswoman Sonya Kullmann said a Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care center is slated to open in January at the Sidewalk Plaza shopping center, 3233 E. Sunshine St.

Rita Baron, Sidewalk Plaza’s owner via Raga Properties LLC, said Mercy signed a 10-year lease for 2,200 square feet on the west side of the shopping center. She said Sidewalk Plaza, which also includes tenants Eat Fit Go Healthy Foods and Pita Pit, is now fully leased.

Kullmann said Mercy and GoHealth Urgent Care — affiliated with Access Clinical Partners LLC, which is owned by TPG Growth — determine whether to place the centers based on traffic counts and popular growth areas in town.

The urgent care center will join two retail-focused health care centers that opened in May at 900 E. Battlefield Road in Battlefield Market Place and 2150 W. Republic Road in Magers Crossing, according to past Springfield Business Journal reporting.

GoHealth creates the physical space for the center, including the outline and design, as well as providing clerical and support staff. Mercy staffs the centers with health care providers and nurse practitioners, SBJ previously reported.
