AUSTIN, Texas, April 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CareSpot is opening its fifth urgent care center in the Austin area on Monday, April 14th, 2014 at 905 East Whitestone Boulevard, Suite B, Cedar Park, Texas. This center will provide a convenient option for care in a rapidly growing retail and residential area. On Saturday, April 26th from 11am – 1pm, the general public is invited to a Grand Opening Celebration. During this time, the community is invited to stop by the Cedar Park center to meet the staff, enjoy light refreshments, and register to win a digital tablet and other giveaways. The first 100 visitors to tour the center will receive a care kit which includes $200 worth of valuable health care savings to use throughout the year.
The 3,500-square-foot location is conveniently located in Cedar Park Town Center near Costco, at Whitestone Boulevard and Toll 183A. This center will provide the same broad array of urgent care, health check, and occupational health services found at the four other Austin-area CareSpot locations: Cat Hollow, Round Rock, Southpark Meadows, and Tech Ridge. All Austin-area CareSpot centers are open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm. These locations offer care for flu, infections, migraines, sprains, cuts, bruises, burns and minor illnesses, as well as IVs, X-rays, lab tests, immunizations, physicals, and health screenings.
"A fifth location in the Austin area continues to improve on our company strategy of providing a variety of locations that are convenient and close to where people live and work. Our extended hours 7 days a week work well with families' busy lifestyles," said Paul Dickison, Vice President of Marketing for CareSpot. "Additional locations provide more convenient urgent care options for everyone in the broader region."
Patients at all CareSpot centers benefit from the convenience of online and mobile scheduling tools at CareSpot.com. Customers can save a spot in line before walking in, or book an appointment for a future time or day from their computers or smartphones. These conveniences allow patients to spend more time at home and less time in the lobby. The centers also feature digital check-in tablets for a nearly paperless, streamlined registration when patients arrive.
CareSpot also offers the convenience of treating non-emergent medical problems that can develop unexpectedly and require immediate attention, filling the gap between primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms when patients can't wait for an appointment. Same-day visits at CareSpot can be a more affordable alternative to a hospital emergency department for non-life threatening issues.
CareSpot-operated centers provide a wide range of healthcare services such as urgent care, health checks, and occupational health services. CareSpot operates 56 urgent care centers across Tennessee, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Florida. The centers feature multiple exam rooms, on-site lab testing and X-ray capabilities. Online and mobile scheduling tools at CareSpot.com allow patients to find a convenient location, book appointments and even save a spot in line. Visit CareSpot.com to learn more.
