Glasgow Medical Center Expands to University of Delaware STAR Campus
Newark, Del. — Glasgow Medical Center opened the doors of its newest Medical Aid Unit on the STAR Campus of the University of Delaware on South College Avenue.
Glasgow Medical Aid Units are urgent care facilities, staffed by physicians and nurses seven days a week. Patients are typically in and out within an hour and no appointment is necessary. When an illness or minor injury requires medical attention but does not call for an emergency room visit, or takes place outside of a physician’s office hours, Medical Aid Units are an attractive wellness alternative.
“Having convenient medical facilities nearby adds value to an area,” said Mark Doughty, chief operating officer of Glasgow Medical Center. “The addition of a Glasgow Medical Aid Unit to the STAR campus will not only ensure that the hard working professionals of the campus are well cared for, in a timely and convenient fashion, but will also make the campus more attractive to additional businesses.”
Art Kretz, chief executive officer, added, “Local medical aid units keep those employed by local businesses in good health, while also commonly serving the medical needs of their families. Glasgow Medical Aid Units serve the community and help keep Delaware’s population well.”
The three existing Glasgow Medical Aid Units currently see 60,000 patients per year, and with the addition of the STAR campus, projections suggest the company’s annual reach will exceed 80,000. The STAR campus facility is responsible for creating 6-8 new jobs.
