Daviess Community Hospital’s Quick Care Clinic is now open more hours to serve the community’s minor injuries and illnesses. The new schedule will be Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and from noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays. The clinic will continue to provide care on a walk-in basis. This clinic does have the “In-Quicker” service where patients can sign up online at www.dchosp.org for a specific time slot.

“Due to steady growth in the number who use Quick Care for treatment of non-emergency, everyday illnesses, we have added a third nurse practitioner,” says Connie Casper, RN, Clinic Operations Manager. “That allows us to provide the additional hours and services to our community for those illnesses that do not require emergency care.”

Annually, the hospital’s Quick Care Clinic saves the community nearly $500,000 in health care costs by providing a more cost effective solution for non-emergent medical care than care in a hospital emergency room.

Darla Eaton, family nurse practitioner, has returned to DCH Quick Care and will be the third practitioner assigned to the clinic. A former emergency department nurse at DCH, Eaton is a family nurse practitioner with over 20 years of experience in nursing and advanced degrees from Ball State University and Indiana Wesleyan University. She is a member of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Eaton joins Angie Kenworthy, nurse practitioner, who has been at the clinic since May 2011 and Debbie Ramsey, nurse practitioner, who has been at DCH Medical Clinic and more recently Quick Care since 2008.
