Holy Spirit Health System is bringing an urgent care center to its hospital campus at 431 N. 21st St., Camp Hill.

Spirit Urgent Care, located right next to the hospital, will open Monday, April 29, and operate 8 a.m.-10 p.m. daily, no appointments needed.

HSHS said the walk-in center is designed to be a convenient and affordable option for those who have common health problems including colds and flu, cuts and bruises, ear and throat infections, fever, migraine headaches, seasonal allergies, skin rashes, sprains and minor musculoskeletal injuries, stomach viruses, and urinary tract infections. Spirit Urgent Care will provide X-rays and blood testing on-site. Flu and tetanus vaccines and testing for strep infections and tuberculosis also will be given there, and the electronic medical records of patients of Holy Spirit's primary care and medical specialty offices will be available to the providers at Spirit Urgent Care.

"The outpatient electronic medical record helps with safety of care, as well as efficiency of care," Dr. Peter Cardinal, medical director of Spirit Physician Services, said in a news release. "When providers have access to patient medical history, they can provide better care, and previously completed tests and procedures are not repeated."

Patients treated at Spirit Urgent Care will receive complete reports of their care and test results, and a copy also will be sent to their family doctorS, who can provide follow-up care if needed.
