Mount Nittany Health is pleased to introduce Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE, our new same-day, convenient care location opening in early Spring 2024.

Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE, soon to be located in the Hills Plaza in State College, PA on South Atherton Street, will offer same-day patient visits with no appointment needed. The 2,400 sq. ft. location will be open seven days a week and available to everyone in the community, not just Mount Nittany Health patients.

Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE is a new service that provides care for relatively minor illnesses and injuries, such as colds, flu, sore throats, ear and sinus infections, sprains and joint pain, and minor injuries, burns and rashes, and sports physicals. Although those issues may be handled by a primary care provider, ExpressCARE is there for those without a regular provider or those who need care outside of normal office hours. Patients requiring care for serious injuries and pain, including broken bones, should visit the Mount Nittany Medical Center Emergency Department, where comprehensive emergency care is available.
