NEW LONDON — The public is invited to an open house and ribbon-cutting ceremony planned from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Monday. Food and refreshments will be provided.

UH Samaritan’s New London Urgent Care, which opened June 24, is located at 206 W. Main St. The new healthcare facility is home to a 1,700 square-foot urgent care with an additional 1,800 square feet of space for future growth.

The Samaritan Hospital Foundation partnered with the Archer family and Kent Watersports to build the $1 million facility, allowing UH Samaritan Medical Center to provide new healthcare services to New London and surrounding communities.

During the ceremony, Dick Beal, President of the Samaritan Hospital Foundation will hand over the deed and keys to Karen McNeil, former president of UH Samaritan, who will accept them on the hospital’s behalf.

“University Hospitals continues to expand its locations and services in our local communities,” McNeil said. “This healthcare facility is a natural extension to services we provide in Ashland and surrounding areas. Patients’ access to health care services and providers is of utmost importance to us and this New London healthcare site allows us to meet needs in an underserved area.”

Rachel Reid, CNP and Sean Newbill, PA-C will be on staff.

Walk-ins are accepted Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Services are provided for allergies, except severe reactions, bee stings and insect bites, coughs, colds and sore throats, cut and laceration care, including stitches, ear infections, fever and flu-like symptoms, head lice treatment, minor burns and rashes, pink eye, poison ivy, sinus infections, skin irritations and scabies, sports injuries, sprains, strains and deep bruises, STD checks, TB testing (self-pay), urinary tract infections, and work-related injuries (initial injury only).
