A new EZ Care walk-in clinic, a service of Horizon Health, is now open in Marshall, IL.
The new clinic is located in the former Wellum chiropractic building at 1602 N. Illinois Highway 1.
Hours are Friday, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. The clinic sees patients age three months and older on a first-come, first-served basis.
“The community has been interested in us opening a clinic there for quite some time,” said Oliver Smith, Horizon Health president and CEO. “We’re very excited to be able to fulfill a need that exists in Marshall and the surrounding communities.”
Like EZ Care in Paris, EZ Care–Marshall treats minor, non-emergency health conditions such as ear, nose and throat infections; flu symptoms; pink eye; rashes; minor lacerations; simple fractures; and burns.
Some minor procedures may be performed. Lab samples can be taken onsite, though actual testing is performed at the Paris Community Hospital lab.
Primarily providers at EZ Care–Marshall are family nurse practitioners Charlene Moore and Mallory Cook, both of Marshall, along with additional support staff. Moore and Cook have more than 15 years of combined nursing experience. Each has significant emergency department experience, including certification in advanced trauma life support.
“Their backgrounds in emergency medicine and trauma care is very impressive and will be an added benefit to our patients,” said Carrie Cunningham, APRN, FNP, EZ Care manager.
Cook earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing at Indiana State University. Her experience includes working as an emergency room nurse/nurse practitioner in Terre Haute. She became a nurse practitioner in August 2017.
Moore earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing at Indiana State University. She worked as a registered nurse in an intensive care unit and as a nurse practitioner in an emergency department in Terre Haute. She became a nurse practitioner in December 2017.
To help meet the healthcare needs of patients in the Marshall area, Horizon Health plans to offer specialty services at EZ Care–Marshall in the future.
