After years of planning and preparation, Cooley Dickinson Medical Group is proud to announce the opening of a second Urgent Care location at 12 College Highway in Southampton. Situated directly adjacent to the long-established Cooley Dickinson Rehabilitation Clinic in the Big Y Plaza, the location straddles the Southampton/Easthampton line and will serve members of both communities as well as other nearby towns including Westfield and Westhampton.
The Southampton Urgent Care will be open from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, and will treat cold and flu symptoms; viral illnesses; cuts and minor lacerations including those requiring sutures or suture removal; minor burns; ear and eye infections; respiratory and urinary tract infections; rashes; strains/sprains and minor fractures. Other services provided will include incision and drainage of abscesses; sports and camp physicals and Occupational Medicine including DOT physicals and drug screening.
The new location expands Cooley Dickinson’s commitment to the Urgent Care model, which can often serve as an alternative to the Emergency Department for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses and in many cases reduce the cost and wait time for treatment of those conditions. Highly anticipated by members of its proximate communities, the Southampton facility will also bring Urgent Care services much closer to homes, schools and businesses that may be 7-10 miles or more from Cooley Dickinson Hospital.
At an open house event in late June, Cooley Dickinson CEO Joanne Marqusee welcomed many western Mass. public officeholders to speak, including State Representatives Dan Carey and Lindsay Sabadosa, Southampton Town Manager Ed Gibson and Easthampton City Council President Joe McCoy, who read a proclamation. Tours of the spacious facility, which will also house radiology and lab services, were given by staff, and a ribbon was cut by Marqusee and Easthampton Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Moe Belliveau.
