St. Charles Immediate Care Facility has been opened for a year and continues to get a lot of use. St. Charles CEO, Jim Diegel says they opened the new center in part to give people without insurance a place to get treatment, besides the Emergency Room. Mission accomplished. “There's been an appreciable number of patients who now go to immediate care instead of the Emergency Room and it works better for them. Diegel says Immediate Care does not turn people away for inability to pay and their charges are much more reasonable than the Emergency Room.
