NextCare Opens Third Urgent Care Location

Lovelace is proud to partner with NextCare Urgent Care to recently open a third urgent care clinic in June at 5504 Menaul Blvd. NE, Suite F, on the southwest corner of Menaul Blvd. and Alvarado.

The first NextCare urgent care clinic opened in October at 8201 Golf Course Road N.W., Suite A3, in Albuquerque. The second clinic opened in December at 9551 Paseo del Norte Blvd. N.E., Unit D, in Albuquerque.

“NextCare is one of the nation’s leading urgent care providers,” said Dr. John Cruickshank, CEO of Lovelace Medical Group and CMO at Lovelace Health System. “They offer outstanding care and we are proud to partner with them to bring these urgent care clinics to the Albuquerque area.”

The new clinic will be open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. As an added feature, the urgent care clinic will offer NextCare’s signature online check-in, called WAHOO® (Wait at Home or Office), so patients can be seen without waiting in the lobby. The clinic accepts most insurance plans, including Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Molina Healthcare, Medicare, Workers Compensation, and many others. For more information, go to
