ROCKY HILL, Conn., June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Kathy's Urgent Care has opened its second clinic in May at 856 Cromwell Avenue in Rocky Hill. The new location will meet the growing need of area residents for timely, professional medical care, especially after hours and on weekends. The public was invited to a Grand Opening Celebration on May 20, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and received free wellness exams, tours of the facility, and an opportunity to meet Dr. Thomas Brown and his professional staff.
As Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Brown notes, "Our experience in Wethersfield demonstrates the importance of locally owned, quality health care for our community. Expansion to Rocky Hill allows us to serve folks there more conveniently." Dr. Brown, a board-certified internal medicine and urgent care physician, emphasizes the importance of treating every patient with respect. As he explains, "We provide care without the hassle of long wait times or inconvenient hours. And we accept most insurance plans as well as patients without insurance. Our mission is to provide the health care that people deserve."
Expansion of Kathy's Urgent Care reflects rapidly growing changes in the delivery of health care in the United States. People who get a stomach bug or who cut their finger while slicing a tomato on a weekend now don't need to endure long waits or the expense of an emergency room visit, or when they are unable to see their primary care doctor. Others who need a quick physical exam for immigration or employment often cannot wait for weeks to see their regular physician. These situations have created a niche that urgent care clinics, like Kathy's Urgent Care, fill. And since reports of patient visits can be forwarded to primary care physicians and are usually paid for by existing insurance plans, people do not encounter any fragmentation of care.
Kathy's Urgent Care (http://kathysurgentcare.com) operates two walk-in clinics to treat non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses and offer physical exams and other preventative services. Locations: 856 Cromwell Ave., Rocky Hill, CT (860-967-32306), and 672 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, CT (860-967-3600). Hours: Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Sat-Sun, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
