Physicians Immediate Care St Lucie West History
In 2010 the closure of one hospital owned and operated urgent care center and the transition from urgent care center to freestanding emergency department of a competing hospital owned facility in St Lucie West left a void of fast, convenient reasonably priced urgent care in the area. Following this loss of a quality urgent care facility, our fourth location opened on St. Lucie West Boulevard for the convenience of the residents in this fine community. Physicians Immediate Care is the first and foremost urgent care spot in the St Lucie West, Bayshore, Prima Vista area. Located right off of Interstate 95 in the heart of Northwestern Port St. Lucie, known to locals as “St. Lucie West”, this 3,200 square foot office has six spacious patient rooms in close proximity to the entrance and exits for easy access from the front lobby. All six rooms have the supplies readily available to treat your injury or illness. Although parking can be a bit challenging in this location the search for a parking space is well worth the effort as you will receive the best in medical care at Physicians Immediate Care St Lucie West.
