Willis-Knighton Health System has announced plans to open an urgent care clinic at the recently opened Forbing Marketplace at the Corner of Ellerbe and Flourney - Lucas Roads. The project will be handled by NewQuest Properties, a Houston based real estate developer.

The new WK center, which will be the fifth facility of its type, is expected to open this summer and will give southeast Shreveport residents a healthcare option closer than the clinic on Bert Kouns at Youree Drive.

The new clinic will be almost 4,000 square feet in size. Construction is expected to begin before the end of March.
