Plessen Opens New Urgent Care Center

As usual, Plessen Healthcare is on the leading edge of improving medical services here on St. Croix. Plessen Healthcare started with their clinic and surgical center in Golden Rock, which continues to provide a wide range of adult primary care services and internal medicine subspecialties dedicated to chronic disease prevention. Then they introduced telemedicine to St. Croix just in time for the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Plessen has opened a new, state of the art Urgent Care facility in the Sunny Isles Shopping Center.

With the opening of the Urgent Care Center, all Plessen Healthcare clients who require care on a walk-in basis will be seen at the new Urgent Care location at Sunny Isles. Patients will be able to walk-in to be seen in turn or alternatively may choose to remotely save their place in line through the online system, adding efficiency to the experience. The online option is available at The medical clinic in Orange Grove will continue to serve patient primary care and specialty healthcare needs, by appointment only. Appointments can be made by calling (340) 715-7720.

The Urgent Care Center will be open 7 days a week, and their staff is experienced in urgent care and emergency medicine. They see patients ages 2 and up for acute illness, injuries, vaccines, drug screening, COVID testing, and more. The Urgent Care includes in-house diagnostics including x-ray and laboratory facilities.

Temporary Hours of operation are:

  • Monday – Friday 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Extended Hours (Coming Soon) will be:

  • Monday – Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturday and Sunday 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Plessen Healthcare is now a Fully Integrated Healthcare System comprised of Urgent Care, Primary Care, Specialty Care and the Virgins Island’s very first AAAHC Accredited and CMS Certified Outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Center – taking care of all of St Croix’s healthcare needs under one orange umbrella! Plessen continues their commitment to affordable, accountable and efficient healthcare and is centrally located within the Caribbean for easy travel from down island, the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, Bermuda and the U.S. mainland.

“Now you have a place to bring your child or elderly relative on the weekends when they get sick or hurt themselves. We wanted to address that need in the community. With the addition of our Urgent Care Center, Plessen has become an integrated healthcare system. We are now able to care for our patients all around when they have an injury or an acute issue, and then have a follow-up visit in our primary care or specialty care clinic, and provide them with surgery when they need it. This, as well as our Telehealth program, allows our patients to receive a full spectrum of care, all linked together with our healthcare information exchange technology,”

Dr. Jan Tawakol, co-founder of Plessen Healthcare LLC. would like to thank Plessen Healthcare for all of the amazing facilities and services they provide, and continue to expand upon, for the benefit of the St. Croix community.
