WINSLOW, Ariz. — The Winslow Chamber of Commerce hosted a monthly mixer at the Little Colorado Medical Center (LCMC).

The spokesman for LCMC was Doug Umlah, who provided information about increased medical services at the hospital.

Umlah said the new Urgent Care Clinic, where patients with non-life threatening ailments can be seen every 15 minutes, is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday without an appointment.

Umlah said the clinic frees up the Emergency Room and allows patients to be taken care of in a timely manner daily.

“The Clinic previously had a reputation of being hard to access,” Umlah said. He also indicated the Clinic and hospital were in the process of being certified as a Rural Health Clinic by Medicare, which could result in more funding from federal sources.
