Travelers and employees at Sky Harbor Airport will soon have a new healthcare option.

Phoenix is believed to have the nation's first airport health center. It’s called USCareWays and it’s expected to open to the public late this week.

Located inside Terminal Four, the center will provide certain vaccinations, prescriptions, and lab tests, among other services. Non-life threatening conditions like ear infections, colds, coughs, sprains and cuts can be treated on a walk-in basis.

The center, located inside Drugs & More on the third level, will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

More than 30,000 people work at the airport and USCareWays will offer pre-employment screening, physicals and occupational health services. In 2017, Sky Harbor reported nearly 44 million passengers.
