HANCOCK — Portage Health announced today it has expanded hours for Express Care, located at 921 W. Sharon Avenue in Houghton.

The new hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week. Holiday hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

"The overwhelming support from the community has proven the need for the types of affordable, accessible services provided by Express Care," said Emergency Department Director Timothy Vayder, MD, who said additional staff had been hired to meet the demand.

Express Care opened in February to accommodate those patients with illnesses or injuries that require medical treatment but that are not serious enough to warrant a visit to the emergency room. Most services are covered by a $45 fee.
