Urgent Care Nearly Ready to Open

Work continued at a furious pace in the weeks up through December, as contractors in a variety of specialties hustled to complete their tasks at the new NorthBay Urgent Care center in the Nut Tree Plaza in Vacaville.

Plans call for a Jan. 10 VIP reception with civic leaders, board members, Vacaville Chamber of Commerce representatives and others in the morning, to be followed by a ribbon cutting.Work is continuing at a fast and furious pace at the new urgent care center in Vacaville.

“After that, we’ll be open for business,” said Wayne Geitz, vice president of Ambulatory Services.

An affordable and convenient alternative to the hospital emergency room, NorthBay Urgent Care will take up about 4,000 square feet, situated adjacent to the vintage Nut Tree train and carousel.

NorthBay is partnering with Direct Urgent Care, an innovative medical practice that operates similar high-tech, patient-centric facilities in the Bay Area, all in retail centers. The center is equipped with accelerated lab testing and X-rays.
