Illnesses and injuries don’t have regular business hours, which is why Laredo Medical Center is proud to announce the opening of their newest clinic, Laredo CareNow. Laredo CareNow is an after-hours clinic that provides quality, affordable health care for the whole family.
“Laredo Medical Center understands that illnesses and injuries can occur at any time, any day of the week,” said Enrique Gallegos, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer, LMC. “Therefore the staff at Laredo CareNow offers a wide range of services for minor illnesses and injuries with convenient evening and weekend hours, 7 days a week.”
While we encourage everyone to see their established physician for the best continuity of care, there may be instances when he or she has a full schedule of appointments and isn’t able to see the patient right away. At Laredo CareNow, patients are seen by a Practitioner and no appointment is necessary.
Furthermore, patients who work or go to school during the day, but find themselves needing a routine checkup or assistance in managing conditions such as diabetes, asthma, or heart disease, will find the care they need at Laredo CareNow. Finally, using Laredo CareNow will save patients money on medical expenses. A trip to the ER will cost significantly more than a visit to an after-hours clinic.
“Local employers in the area may also take advantage of occupational services provided at Laredo CareNow,” said Gallegos. “C
ompanies needing to hire new employees right away may send prospective candidates to Laredo CareNow for pre-employment physicals or drug screens. Businesses that have a second or third shift can also send employees to Laredo CareNow if there is an injury on the job during evening or weekend shifts.”
Conditions treated at Laredo CareNow include:
Other services include on-site lab and x-ray imaging

Services are available Monday through Friday, 4 p.m. – 11 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, call (956) 724-5525.
