(Napa, Calif. – April 19, 2017) Queen of the Valley’s new urgent care clinic — St. Joseph
Health Prompt Care — will open its doors at River Park Shopping
Center (1621 West Imola Ave, Napa, CA 94559) on Monday, April 24, 2017.
The 3,543-square-foot clinic brings much-needed urgent care services to
the city of Napa, offering affordable treatments and same-day medical care.
St. Joseph Health Prompt Care will benefit individuals with minor illnesses
— such as belly aches, sore throats, ear and sinus infections, or
injuries — such as small cuts and fractures — that require
timely attention, and may not be serious enough for the emergency room,
which should be reserved for conditions that may be life threatening,
such as head injuries or sudden severe pain.

St. Joseph Health Prompt Care has four treatment rooms that are staffed
with a team of caregivers including Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants,
Medical Assistants and Radiology Technologists. There are four treatment
rooms and an x-ray room, which offers portable digital x-rays that will
be sent electronically to the Queen of the Valley’s radiologist
who will work with the provider to develop an appropriate treatment plan.
The clinic is stocked with everything necessary to diagnose and treat
a variety of illnesses and injuries.
“St. Joseph Health Prompt Care can get you in front of a provider
fast, [especially] if you don’t have a primary care physician or
cannot get an appointment with them. This gives you easier access to care
7 days a week,” Sprinkle said.
Urgent care services will be available daily from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
(with the exception of major holidays), and will accept all types of insurance,
including Medi-Cal and Medicare.
In addition, primary care providers can refer patients to Prompt Care for
blood draws and x-rays. Prompt Care’s outpatient lab draw station,
will be open Monday through Friday. Hours of operation for the lab are:
