Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale recently announced plans to open an urgent care and imaging center in Boca Raton.

The East Boca clinic, to be located at 1799 S. Federal Highway, is scheduled for completion in September. It will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week.

Convenience and access to care are two big benefits for Boca Raton residents, who can use the center after work and on weekends for minor emergencies, preventive care and more.

Services will include

  • Immunizations and vaccines
  • Treatment of burns, fractures, sprains and lacerations
  • Treatment of minor illnesses, such as colds or the flu
  • School physicals for $20 each
  • Treatment of worker’s compensation injuries,
  • Employer physicals and drug tests
  • Dispensing some medications

Patients can have some screenings and diagnostic tests done there, too. The 7,844-square-foot center will offer imaging services, such as CT scans, digital x-rays, mammography and ultrasounds, as well as basic laboratory testing.

Fort Lauderdale-based Holy Cross Hospital is a non-profit Catholic hospital, sponsored by the Sisters of Mercy, which opened in 1955. Holy Cross plans to open more outpatient centers in South Florida. For more information about the new center in Boca and other planned urgent care facilities, visit HolyCrossUrgentCare.com.
