Orthopedic urgent care clinic opens in Manheim Twp.
A new urgent care office treating orthopedic ailments opened its doors this week in Manheim Township.
Orthopedics Associates of Lancaster is now offering walk-in treatment at Orthopedic Urgent Care, run out of the company’s main office on North Pointe Boulevard.
The urgent care center employs physician assistants who can assess injuries - including sports and knee injuries - through examinations and x-rays if required.
If necessary, the physician assistant can refer the patient for an appointment at one of the practice's four branches. Services not rendered at the practice include prescription refills, emergency treatment, concussions and care of open wounds.
In addition to the Manheim office, Orthopedics Associates operates an office in West Lampeter Township, one in the Spooky Nook sports complex in East Hempfield Township and another in North Cornwall Township in Lebanon County.
Founded in 1972, Orthopedics Associates is the sole provider of emergency orthopedic trauma care at Lancaster General Hospital, operated by the nonprofit Lancaster General Health which affiliated with Penn Medicine in 2015.
Orthopedics Associates and LG Health share the location in North Cornwall Township. Alongside the orthopedics practice, LG Health began operating a family clinic, heart clinic and urgent care clinic at the location in 2015, just eight days after Orthopedics Associates opened in the facility.
