LONGMEADOW — Doctors, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will treat illnesses and injuries quickly — without a trip to the emergency room — at a new urgent care clinic run by Baystate Health at the Longmeadow Shops.The location, Baystate’s sixth urgent care clinic, opened Monday.”I see urgent care as really a continuation of the emergency department,” said Dr. Brian Sutton, medical director of Baystate Urgent Care. “But we will be here to treat urgencies, not emergencies.”With five treatment rooms, a medical laboratory and X-ray lab, the new Longmeadow Shops location can handle all the everyday — or not-so everyday — maladies that often send folks to an emergency room but do not have to: colds, coughs, flu, fever, sore throat, upper respiratory problems or asthma, minor cuts or burns, rash, skin, and eye infection, urinary tract infections, earaches, migraine headaches, strains and sprains, stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and some animal bites. “Our goal is to get someone in the door and back out the door in an hour or less,” Sutton said. “That is the industry standard.”Costs vary according to insurance coverage, but Baystate says a patient might pay a $50 copay at an urgent care compared with a $500 copay at an emergency room.Baystate Health Urgent Care Longmeadow will be open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday & Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.No appointment is necessary, but patients can hold a spot in advance at baystatehealth.org/services/urgent-care.The 3,000-square-foot urgent care clinic is on the western side of the plaza, near Longmeadow High School and the town’s athletic fields. The shopping center has long had medical offices, including an orthodontist and a pediatrician today.
