Two is a big number lately for Urgent Care of Papillion, near 72nd Street and Giles Road.

The clinic recently celebrated its second anniversary, opened a second location, and added two new partners.

The addition of the two partners -- one silent, the other Bryan Myers, a physician assistant -- enabled the clinic owners to open a second office, Urgent Care of Wahoo, at 567 W. 15th St.

The second anniversary was celebrated this weekend, said founding partner Pete Crane, also a physician assistant. Crane said he has enjoyed serving patients' health needs as well as getting involved in the community through organizations such as the Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce, Sumpter Amphitheater and local schools.

 

"The community has really accepted us," said Crane, who previously operated an urgent care clinic in Scottsbluff.

There were fewer than five urgent care clinics in the state when he opened that office 17 years ago, he said. Today there are 49, according to a recent UNMC report. With people insured under Obamacare, Crane expects business to grow.

"Everybody is going to have access to health care now," he said.
