Sep. 9—If you've been wondering what all the construction inside the fencing in the Shaw's parking lot at 600 Center St. is all about, wonder no more. The Buzz can confirm that a ConvenientMD Urgent Care facility will soon occupy the space.

On July 12, the city Planning Board approved a proposal to construct a 5,000-square-foot facility with 25 parking spaces.

According to its website, ConvenientMD has more than 25 locations in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine. The Auburn location will be the ninth in Maine.

The company says its clinics are open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and accept most insurance. The clinics provide a broad range of basic medical care, including minor emergencies, and that its facilities are equipped to perform X-rays, lab tests on-site, EKGs and IV fluids. The clinics also offer immunizations, preventive care and on-site prescription services.
