Baptist Health Urgent Care Opens in West Little Rock

Little Rock, Ark., (February 24, 2020) – Baptist Health Urgent Care, opened today at 14524 Cantrell Rd., next to Señor Tequila Restaurant in west Little Rock.

“Many times, when people feel unwell or have an injury, they are unsure whether to go to the emergency room (ER) or wait to see their primary care doctor,” said Mike Dupuis, Urgent Team Division Vice President. “Baptist Health Urgent Care centers fill this gap by providing quality walk-in healthcare outside of regular physician hours – and at a fraction of the time and cost of an ER visit.”

The centers are open seven days a week and offer evening hours during the workweek, for added convenience. Walk-ins are welcome or online scheduling is available with Hold My Spot®.
