Doctors Express Urgent Care will open its second Danbury center next month on 100 Mill Plain Road.
The walk-in urgent care center will have an on-site laboratory, pharmacy and X-ray equipment. Doctors at the center will diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries as well as dispense medication to patients.
Doctors Express will hold a grand-opening celebration April 30, from 5 to 8 p.m. In a press release, the company estimated the new facility will create 20 jobs.
“The city of Danbury is extremely business friendly,” said Tom Kelly, co-owner of Doctors Express Urgent Care, in a statement. “As in the past, the city works to create an environment where businesses can open and flourish. Our newest center is located in a highly commercial corridor which lacks medical care alternatives.”
The first Doctors Express location in Connecticut, on 2 Main St. in Danbury, opened in March 2013. Along with urgent care, Doctors Express Danbury also provides physicals and vaccinations.
Danbury Mayor Mark D. Boughton said he was pleased to see another medical facility open in the city.
“Doctors Express has established itself as a reliable go-to facility able to serve the medical needs facing the residents of Danbury and other neighboring communities,” Boughton said. “We welcome a second Danbury Doctors Express urgent care location and applaud Doctors Express for choosing our city as a foundation to build this growing genre of medical care.”
