Geisinger becomes the first member of Risant Health

BERWICK, Pa. – A new Geisinger Careworks urgent care location has opened in Columbia County, offering patient-friendly and convenient care close to home. The facility in Berwick is located at 65 Briar Creek Plaza, on Route 11, and is near Giant.

“Our new location is designed to be there when you need it the most,” said Richard Martin, MD, medical director 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.”  

The Berwick Careworks opens June 1 and offers extended hours, open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Careworks is staffed with advanced practitioners who treat patients 1 year of age and older. 

Careworks Urgent Care locations are the best place to go for minor health issues that can be resolved in a single visit. Treating a sprained ankle and a rash to having a tick removed and evaluating infections of the sinuses, ears, urinary tract and respiratory system are examples of issues specialists treat at Geisinger urgent care clinics. 

Geisinger also has a Careworks location in Bloomsburg. Patients can visit or click here for urgent care wait times or for more information.
