Temple to open urgent care center on Roosevelt Boulevard

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.
