A public open house is planned for Saturday, March 28 from 9 to 11 a.m. Residents will be able to see the new facility, meet the providers, and learn about services offered at the center.

“We’ve received a great deal of community support for this project. It’s important to us that we take this time to say ‘Thank you!’ to our community,” said Dr. Brooke Sheffler, associate medical director for walk-in & urgent care.

“We’re very excited to be offering this option to patients in the Franklin County area and beyond. We can’t wait to open later this month.”

Chambersburg Urgent Care, located at 1000 Norland Ave., will be open every day, including holidays, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Some of the services available include treatment for:

How do I know where to go?
There are several options when it comes to medical care. Knowing where to go often depends on the type of illness or injury and the severity.

Walk-in Care, like our facility in Greencastle, offers treatment for common, non-life threatening conditions, such as colds, coughs, and flu symptoms.

Urgent Care, like our facilities in Chambersburg and Shippensburg, is similar, but offers expanded service hours and enhanced services for treatment of an illness or condition that requires care within 24 hours to avoid further complications.

The Emergency Department is available for life-threatening conditions and other illnesses and injuries. If you are experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, loss of consciousness, severe headache, severe abdominal pain, or severe bleeding, go to the nearest hospital emergency department or call 911.
