MORRISTOWN — WVU Medicine opened a new Express Care Clinic in Morristown this week.

It is located at the Morristown Family Medicine at 66840 Belmont-Morristown Road, where the facility remodeled its durable medical equipment storage facility into what is now the Express Care Clinic.

The idea for the new clinic started during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it officially became a plan in June 2022.

“You do not have to be a WVU Medicine patient. You don’t have to be established with one of our primary family medicine providers. You’re free to just walk in and we will provide you with acute services,” WVU Medicine Barnesville Hospital Ambulatory Services Manager Ashley Saffell said. “We are more than happy to help and serve you.”

The Express Care Clinic offers multiple medical services for several reasons, including physicals for work, nursing school or youth sports.

Although Tuesday afternoon was its grand opening, the clinic has been open and seeing patients since April 29.

The Express Care Clinic is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

“Our X-Ray room has a brand new X-Ray machine, which is super nice and super updated from the one we had before which has been a huge blessing,” Nurse Practitioner Kelsey Garvin said.

The new facility has a lab, an X-Ray room, three exam rooms and an office.

“It’s nice having a brand new space. When patients come in they’re like, ‘Wow, this feels really nice,’ because it’s nice and new. Of course any new location is going to have that new feel to it,”

Garvin said.

Marketing and Communications Strategist for Barnesville Hospital Lindsay Dowdle described the care providers working at the new facility.

“We have two providers that provide services here at the Express Care Clinic, Kelsey Garvin, a nurse practitioner and Olivia Jefferis, a nurse practitioner,” Dowdle said. “We are happy to be open and serving the community in any way that we can.”

She added that if anybody has any questions call 740-782-1031.
