“The opening of our first Walk-In Care center in Saco marks an exciting occasion for SMMC,” stated President and CEO Ed McGeachey. “Being open seven days a week from noon to 8 pm gives surrounding communities access to the most convenient non-emergency care in York County. It’s important for everyone to have a Primary Care Physician and we encourage patients to continue visiting their Primary Care Physician to maintain good health. However, when the doctor isn’t available, SMMC’s Walk-In Care provides another option for care. In addition, SMMC continues to provide emergency care at the hospital campus located at One Medical Center Drive in Biddeford all day, every day,” added McGeachey.
