Bustleton will soon have a non-emergency health care center.
Temple University Health System has announced
plans to open TempleReadyCare
at 11000 Roosevelt Blvd.
, next to Chickie's & Pete's.
Once the facility opens Dec. 31, it will operate seven days and most holidays to treat people with non-emergency symptoms.
Temple recommends the service "when you have an unexpected illness, injury or situation that needs immediate medical attention – like a bad cough, an unexplained backache or even a game-day injury." The facility will accept most forms of insurance.
