The staff at Express Care walk-in medical center wants to offer great care without the wait at the new location in Smyrna at 300 Jimmy Drive, Suite 100, in the Simon’s Corner shopping center on U.S. Route 13.

“Along with excellent care, we’re convenient,” said Mel Kougl, Express Care director of marketing and business development, during Monday’s grand opening ceremony. “We’re open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Why wait in the ER?”

The ceremony was attended by Smyrna Mayor John Embert and Councilman Bill Pressley, representatives of the Middletown Area Chamber of Commerce, the First State Military Academy Marine Corps Jr. ROTC color guard and the Express Care staff and company officials.

The Smyrna location has about 15 employees.

Express Care chief executive officer and medical director Maurice Reid, M.D., started the company in 2006 and it’s grown to 33 locations in Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

The centers treat a variety of conditions including broken bones, sprains, burns, earaches, infections, bites, fevers, sore throats, pink eye, nausea and diarrhea, while also offering physicals and x-rays. No appointment is necessary.
