Point of Care Health Group will open an urgent care clinic at 2840 Florida Blvd. in the Mid City area in December.

The clinic will treat most common illnesses and injuries, and its services include X-rays, tests for flu and strep, wellness exams, electrocardiograms and urinalysis.

Dr. Rubin Patel, co-chief executive officer and chief medical officer, completed his training at Earl K. Long Medical Center.

The recent health care closures left a void in the community but offered the clinic an opportunity to fill that gap, the company said.

Patient Plus Urgent Care will operate from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week starting in December and will see patients without appointments.
