ANNAPOLIS, Md., Feb. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Maryland-based urgent care company Righttime Medical Care has opened its newest Care Center in Bethesda at 4507 Stanford Street. The Bethesda Care Center is open 7am to 11pm, 365 days a year, which are the same extended hours as Righttime's other locations.
The Bethesda location marks Righttime's 18th location in Maryland, and the seventh in Montgomery County. The Care Center will offer urgent care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries to patients of all ages, from newborns to seniors, 365 days a year.
Additionally, a co-located HeadFirst Concussion Care clinic will offer comprehensive evaluation and treatment for mild traumatic brain injuries (TBI) for patients of all ages. Bethesda's HeadFirst clinic is the 12th location in Maryland.
"Righttime's providers and staff are known for delivering accessible, high quality urgent care in a warm and caring environment for the communities we serve," said Righttime Chief Executive Officer Robert G. Graw, Jr., M.D. "Our patients tell us they love our expanded hours and commitment to being there when they need us. As we celebrate 30 years of caring for patients throughout Maryland, we encourage our neighbors in Bethesda to stop by and meet us."
While supplies last, Righttime Bethesda is offering free quadrivalent flu shots on a walk-in basis, seven days a week. Recent data collected by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows this year's flu vaccine appears to be a good match to current flu strains in circulation so anyone who receives this year's vaccination is likely to be well-protected.
Righttime Bethesda is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Bethesda, just off Wisconsin Avenue, and offers plenty of free parking in a dedicated lot.
As the company continues to expand, Bethesda's opening will be followed by additional locations opening later this year in Towson (Baltimore County) and California (St. Mary's County).
