An urgent care clinic in Hellertown that's been closed for almost a year-and-a-half could soon reopen under new management, with new staff and physicians on staff, according to a sign that recently appeared in a storefront window.
Premier Urgent Care, which was located in the Shoppes at Hellertown on Main Street until it closed its doors in May 2011, could reopen in its former space.
The reopening was also alluded to at Hellertown Borough Council's Oct. 1 meeting.
Over the summer the clinic's contents were scheduled to be auctioned at a sheriff's sale, according to public notices that were posted on the storefront.
The sign that was posted in the clinic's front window as of early October referred visitors to Premier Urgent Care's website, www.premierimc.com, where the listing for the Hellertown location says it represents "the company's first step in what will ultimately be an entire Lehigh Valley network, extending all the way into the Pocono Mountains."
Premier Urgent Care in Hellertown opened in January 2010.
Staffing issues were cited by a company representative as the reason for its temporary closure a year-and-a-half later.
The time frame for the reopening, however, came and went.
On-site services that were offered at the facility included flu shots, physicals, x-rays, lab diagnostics, STD screenings and minor surgical procedures.
