Urgent Care Center Opens at Thurgood Marshall BWI

    Air travelers passing through Thurgood Marshall BWI Airport who need medical attention soon will have a new option.

    A FirstCall Medical Center is scheduled to open there on Thursday.

    Located in the main terminal near Concourse C, the facility will offer emergency care, first aid, COVID-19 testing and vaccinations, travel vaccines, occupational medicine, and physical exams, according to Gov. Lawrence J. Hogan Jr.’s office.

    It will be available to both the traveling public and airport workers.

    Hogan (R) attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony outside the center on Tuesday .

    The facility will be open seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

    FirstCall accepts most major insurance plans and offers self-pay options for all services.

    First Call Medical Director Ron Elfenbein said only a handful of U.S. airports offer a comparable service.

    Hogan stopped by for the ribbon-cutting before catching a flight to a National Governors Association event in Denver.
