MedExpress Urgent Care centers provide health care for more than just sniffles and colds. The centers will care for people of all ages, providing urgent care, employer health services and basic wellness and prevention services. Their centers also have a range of advanced offerings, such as X-rays, IVs and treatment for broken bones. The centers at 22915 Morton Ranch Road in Katy and 4750 Fairmont Parkway in Pasadena opened on Wednesday, Feb. 14. Both centers will offer free Winter Well Kits, which include lip balm, tea bags, and cold and flu supplies, while supplies last, to help the community stay well this flu season.
Open 8:00 am to 8:00 pm every day, with no appointment necessary, MedExpress providers can treat patients in under an hour, on average. And, for as little as 10 percent the cost of an ER visit, your clients’ employees can save money while receiving quality care by a full medical team.  Compared to an average ER wait of four hours, MedExpress is a convenient choice for those who have non-life-threatening conditions and need timely care.
