Springfield Clinic announced today the opening of a second drive-up lab location at 3040 Hamlin Parkway, Suite A, on the west side of Springfield behind Bella Milano.
Area residents can now choose from two, conveniently located drive-up labs where they can receive routine lab work from the comfort and safety of their own vehicle. The downtown location at 1227 South 7th St., just one block south of Springfield Clinic Main Campus, has served more than 30,000 patients processed more than 150,000 lab orders since it opened in April.
Also new for the west side drive-up location, this facility will provide an enclosed area to keep patients and staff warm and dry as the weather changes this fall. Patients will be able to pull into one of three vehicle bays where laboratory staff will assist them.
“Our drive-up labs have been tremendously successful,” says Laboratory Manager Joe Heigert. “With the opening of our new location on the west side of Springfield, and starting to offer flu vaccines at both of our drive-up labs, we are making it easier and more convenient for patients to get the services they need and keep them safe.”
Now more than ever, it is vitally important to get your flu shot. Springfield Clinic wants to make it easier than ever for their patients to receive the flu vaccine by offering them at their drive-up lab locations. Please note: You must have a Springfield Clinic primary care physician in order to receive your flu shot at a Springfield Clinic drive-up lab.
