ReadyMED is NOT an emergency room. If you are experiencing serious symptoms, such as chest pain or difficulty breathing, or if you have sustained a serious injury, please dial 911 immediately.
Lisa Macknair, a PA in the Same Day Services Department, educates us on Lyme disease and how to protect yourself from deer ticks.
Effective January 29th, ReadyMED Shrewsbury moved two miles down the road to ReadyMED PLUS at 366 Shrewsbury Street in Worcester. At ReadyMED Plus we are able to offer more comprehensive services to patients, including CT scans, infusions and care for infants. Wait times will still be available online.
We can do basic x-rays including chest x-ray & extremity x-rays (such as ankle, foot, arm and leg) and more. Please note that x-ray services are not walk-in–they must be part of a full visit.
We perform complete blood counts & electrolytes, urinalysis & urine pregnancy testing, rapid strep testing and more. Please note that lab services are not walk-in–they must be part of a full visit.
Do you have a life threatening emergency such as chest pain, shortness of breath, severe trauma, poisoning, or stroke?
Go to an Emergency Room or dial 911 imediately. Do NOT go to ReadyMED.
Do you anticipate needing IV (intravenous) fluids for dehydration, vomiting, diarrhea, flu, etc?
