No one should ever have to live with health problems because quality care is unaffordable or too far away.”Doctor Darcy Turner, MD, of Red Desert Insta-Care sees strong benefits for the local community. “Through Sterling, we will be able to add services that our patients need but were beyond our reach as a single-unit clinic,” Dr. Turner said. “The ability to get X-rays and lab work close to home will have an incredibly positive impact for our patients.”Sterling Urgent Care plans to complete upgrades at the Rock Springs location by the end of March 2020.
