Details:           On Friday, November 1, 2013, FSLH opened Genesee Urgent Care, previously known as Independent Physicians Urgent Care, PLLC, located at 1904 Genesee Street in Utica, New York. FSLH acquired Independent Physicians from three area physicians. FSLH also owns and operates an Urgent Care Center at their Faxton Campus, 1676 Sunset Avenue in Utica. The Faxton and Genesee Urgent Care Centers each have nearly 20,000 patient visits annually.

Both urgent care locations are open daily from 8am to 8pm and accept most major insurances. More and more people are being referred to Urgent Care Centers if they suffer from minor medical problems like seasonal allergies, coughs/colds, flu, pink eye, sprains, minor burns and lacerations, urinary tract infections, minor back pain, rashes and nausea. Patients with multiple medical problems and/or severe chronic conditions should be seen in an Emergency Department.
