Premier plans to open a fifth new urgent care

Premier Health is planning a Huber Heights urgent care center, which would be the fifth in a recent series of new suburban urgent cares opened by the Dayton-based health system.

Premier’s contractor filed a permit that was posted online Tuesday to renovate a storefront at the North Heights Plaza shopping center.

“We look forward to meeting the urgent care needs of residents of Huber Heights, as well as travelers through that area,” Premier said in a statement, adding that the urgent care should open this summer.

Dayton Children’s Hospital is also planning a new urgent care center about a quarter mile away at 8501 Old Troy Pike.

The shopping center where the 3,100-square-foot Premier urgent care is proposed in is also home to tenants like Dick’s Sporting Goods and Big Lots.

The Montgomery County permit filed by Ferguson Construction estimates renovation work will cost $300,000, though the total cost of a project is typically different than the dollar figure on the building permit.

Premier, which operates a network of hospitals and doctors around the Miami Valley, just opened four new urgent care centers in Vandalia, Englewood, Springboro and Miamisburg.

The locations that have opened so far have hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day and treat things like sinus infections, ear aches, allergies and pink eye to injuries such as fractured bones. The urgent care staff can also conduct school and sports physicals, give vaccinations, and do diagnostic testing for the flu, pregnancy and strep.
