ELLSWORTH — ConvenientMD, an urgent care clinic slated to open this summer, will delay its opening to spring of 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, company Marketing Director Adam Rosenthal said in an email last week.
“Due to the effects of COVID-19 on construction, the opening of our ConvenientMD clinic in Ellsworth is now moved to the spring of 2021. At that time, we will continue to treat a broad range of illnesses and injuries and will offer COVID-19 evaluation and testing services like we do at all of our ConvenientMD locations in New Hampshire, Maine and Massachusetts,” said Rosenthal.
The company, which has locations around the state, is in the midst of setting up COVID-19 testing sites at campuses across the University of Maine System, including at Orono, Augusta, Farmington, Fort Kent, Machias, Presque Isle and Gorham, in a partnership with the university.
Work on the site of the $1.2-million, 5,350-square-foot facility on High Street across from Walgreens began last fall.
