WILKES-BARRE, Pa. – Geisinger opened its newest Careworks clinic in Wilkes-Barre this month, offering patient-friendly, extended hours and online check-in for quick, convenient healthcare from certified medical professionals. The new facility is located inside Geisinger’s Kistler Clinic at 175 S. Wilkes-Barre Blvd. 

“Our new location is convenient care, designed to be there when you need it the most,” said Jennifer Ronczka, operations manager at Geisinger Careworks. “Open evenings and weekends, patients can use online check-in to hold their place in line or just walk in for issues like cold and flu symptoms, allergies, earaches, sprains and minor cuts.”  

Geisinger Careworks’ extended hours mean patients no longer have to wait until Monday to see a physician and can been seen for common illnesses instead of heading to the emergency department. The new Careworks at Kistler also gives patients access to family medicine, pediatrics and radiology as well as lab and pharmacy services. 

“This clinic is located inside an already established family medicine facility,” said Alexis Duda, administrative director, Geisinger Careworks. “By teaming up under one roof, we can better meet the patients’ healthcare needs in one easy location.” 

The new 1,540-square-foot-space clinic is open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Careworks is staffed with advanced practitioners who treat patients 1 year of age and older.
