HELENA–It’s About Time Urgent Care is now open for business and ready to serve citizens of Helena.

The urgent care facility is located at 225 Helena Market Place next to the Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Marketing Manager Kristie LaRochelle discussed the reasoning for choosing the Helena area to open an urgent care facility in a recent interview.

“They did a lot of studies on different places and realized Helena wasn’t being served,” said LaRochelle. “We learned that people in Helena are very loyal and they don’t really want to go out of Helena for service unless they have to. They wanted to find a community that needed the services.”

It’s About Time Urgent Care will feature one doctor and one nurse practitioner as well as medical assistants, x-ray technicians and more.

Dr. Deborah Stanford and nurse practitioner Elizabeth Deslattes have worked in urgent care the last 10 years and said they want to bring compassion and be able to give back to the Helena community.

Some of the services It’s About Time offers include urgent care, occupational health, school and sports exams and Department of Transportation exams.

For parents with babies, the urgent care center will see infants 3-months-old and older. Most clinics won’t see infants unless they are 2-years-old and older.

It’s About Time Urgent Care’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
