SAVANNAH, Ga., Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SouthCoast Health has expanded its urgent care-style service under the name of CareNOW. Existing and new patients who cannot get a timely appointment with their primary care physician now have more access to receive top-quality primary care services from SouthCoast physicians and nurses in a walk-in setting.
For SouthCoast Health's existing patients, CareNOW offers urgent care visits with a provider in their existing health care family. The patient is treated by a SouthCoast medical professional with access to the patient's SouthCoast medical record. The record of the visit is charted and available for the patient's primary care physician to review.
For new patients, it allows for immediate office visits and the opportunity to get established with a primary care doctor who can help to manage and maintain their future health and wellness goals, which embraces a true medical home model.
CareNow for Adults (ages 14 and older)
Savannah, 1326 Eisenhower Drive, Building 1, Monday through Friday, 1 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sundays, Noon to 4 p.m.
CareNow for Kids
Savannah, 310 Eisenhower Drive, Building 16, Monday through Thursday, 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays, 9 a.m. to Noon.
Richmond Hill, 10055 Ford Avenue, Suite 4A, Monday through Thursday, 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays, 9 a.m. to Noon.
Rincon, 814 Towne Park Drive East, Mondays, 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This level of care and integrated approach carries far greater benefits for patients than using a non-affiliated urgent care facility yet offers similar flexibility.
"This is the start of a new day in Savannah healthcare," SouthCoast Health Administrator John Marrero said. "SouthCoast understands the needs of its patients. Recent years have proved the popularity of these services and we are offering them as a response. Patients require flexibility but they also demand the highest level in quality of care. We see this service line as supplementing our traditional doctors' hours, which will continue to require appointments."
SouthCoast Health is a multi-specialty, physician-owned medical group with more than 120 healthcare professionals and 18 locations. The organization has been providing quality healthcare solutions to the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry for more than 20 years and is dedicated to complete patient wellbeing.
