Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE Celebrated with Ribbon-cutting Ceremony

On Monday, May 6th, Mount Nittany Health held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE. Open 7 days a week from 9 am – 5 pm, Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE is a new service that provides care for 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.

“Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE is our first same-day, convenient care location,” said Kathleen Rhine, President and CEO, Mount Nittany Health. “When you or a loved one isn’t feeling well, we know how important it is to get care fast. You can do just that at ExpressCARE! The same high-quality care and personal attention that the community has come to expect from Mount Nittany Health will now be available on the same day when the need for care arises – without an appointment. We’ve proudly served the Centre Region for more than 120 years, and we continue to grow to meet the needs of the community, in service to our mission of ‘Healthier people, stronger community.’”

Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE is ideal 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.

Christopher Hester, MD, Chief Medical Officer, Mount Nittany Physician Group said, “I’m delighted that ExpressCARE will become an extension of the outstanding care patients are already receiving from their Mount Nittany Health primary care providers. I’m also pleased that ExpressCARE is able to offer care to anyone in the community, not just established Mount Nittany Health patients and look forward to providing this new service to the local community.”

The opening of Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE is another example of how Mount Nittany Health is investing in the local community. Later this summer, Mount Nittany Health will also celebrate the opening of the new Mount Nittany Health Toftrees location, which will offer a wide range of outpatient healthcare services.

With over 2,400 5-star verified patient reviews on Google, our providers are known for their patient-centered care, and we are excited to make it even easier for people in our community to get the care they need, close to home.

Mount Nittany Health ExpressCARE is located at 2051 S Atherton St, State College, PA 16801.
