McCullough-Hyde,Oxford’s hospital, opened a new urgent care facility on Saturday, Feb 6.

The new facility will be open on the weekends from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. to offer medical treatment for minor injuries and illnesses. Care can be provided for a range of afflictions, including wounds/stitches, broken bones and common infections.

Urgent care will be treated like a walk-in clinic and is a cheaper option than an emergency room trip when it comes to minor injuries.

The urgent care facility will be open solely on the weekends because its operation is meant to supplement medical care for Miami University students and employees when the MU Health Center is closed on Saturdays and Sundays.

The urgent care facility is located at 5151 Morning Sun Road, about three blocks north of McCullough-Hyde’s main campus.
