As of Monday morning, MediQuick Convenience Clinic has a new name and a new home.
The clinic, which has been in operation at its previous location at 1101 N. Providence Road for almost 20 years, has moved to the Parkade Center at 601 Business Loop 70 W. Along with a new location, the clinic’s name has changed to Boone Convenient Care.
Lorie Smith, the office manager of Boone Convenient Care, said the Parkade Center location offers more parking, a bigger waiting room, two more exam rooms and a better design that offers more privacy and a better patient flow.
The clinic’s services range from sutures and minor bone breaks to drug screening and physicals. Because of its affiliation with Boone Hospital Center, the clinic also acts as a referral service to the hospital when the care a patient needs is beyond the means of the clinic.
“I love it,” said John Mrucik, the clinic’s resident physician. “Everything is new and laid out in a professional manner. My office is no longer a storage cabinet.”
Mrucik has been at MediQuick for 11 years and enjoys the diversity of care he is able to provide in working at the clinic.
“You get to see something different every day,” Mrucik said. “We don’t treat everything, but we get to see it.”
Boone Convenient Care’s first day showed that patients had no trouble finding the new location. Smith said that 87 patients were served during the day, which is average, if not a little more than average, for this time of year at the previous location.
