GREENCASTLE, Pa. — Antrim Family and Walk-In Care will hold a ribbon cutting and open house on Thursday.

The event, hosted by the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce, will include an open house of the facility and refreshments until 9 a.m. The ribbon cutting will take place at 7:30 a.m.

Antrim Family and Walk-In Care, an affiliate of Summit Health, is at 50 Eastern Ave. It treats minor illnesses and injuries including cuts, sprains, bee stings, fevers, sore throats and more. No appointments are necessary for walk-in care services.

The facility, which is near the intersection of Interstate 81 and Pa. 16, opened Nov. 29. Treatment will be provided to all ages and most insurance plans are accepted.

Summit Health Spokesperson Jessica Walter said the service is an extension of Summit Health's family medicine practice at the same location.

"It's a convenient alternative when you can't get an appointment with your doctor or when you have an illness or injury that isn't severe enough for a trip to the ER," Walter said in an e-mail.

According to Walter, the need for a walk-in care center in the Greencastle area was indicated by results from a recent community needs assessment conducted by Summit Health and Capital Blue Cross.

The walk-in care center is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
