Dayton-based Premier — a network of hospitals and other health services — has been opening a series of urgent care centers.

The proposed location at the Washington Twp. shopping center would be Premier’s ninth urgent care center in the region. The shopping center at the corner of Whipp Road and Far Hills Avenue is anchored by Dorothy Lane Market.

Messages were left with Premier and with Washington Twp. seeking more information about the urgent care and project timeline.

At Premier’s other locations, the urgent care staff treat minor conditions like sinus infections, ear aches, allergies and pink eye, as well as injuries such as fractured bones.

The locations that have opened so far have been open 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

The first urgent cares in the series were announced in December and opened this spring.

Locations have opened in Englewood, Huber Heights, Mason, Miamisburg, Springboro, Troy and Vandalia.

Premier is also preparing to open an urgent care center in a planning shopping center in Beavercreek along along North Fairfield Road.

Premier is the largest private employer in the region and operates Miami Valley Hospital, Upper Valley Medical Center, Atrium Medical Center and as well as a large network of physicians and outpatient centers.

The Boston Stoker that had been where the urgent care is proposed had closed when a larger store opened at 215 S. Main St., Centerville.
