Livingston HealthCare announces the opening of a new
UrgentCare facility in Livingston that will increase access to convenient, non-emergent
care. This new service, scheduled to open mid-May, will operate out of
the old Way Out West building on the West side of town.
“At Livingston HealthCare we offer very strong Primary Care and Emergency
Department services. Our
UrgentCare will complement those two strengths in an integrated manner, because the
care will be coordinated within our system to ensure continuity with Providers
that our community knows and trusts.” said Dr. Scott Coleman, Medical
Director at Livingston HealthCare.
In Livingston HealthCare’s most recent (2012) Community Health Needs
Assessment, the community identified an urgent care facility as the second
most important thing that would improve the community’s access to
healthcare. “We are thrilled to meet this need for our community.
In addition, we feel it is important for Livingston HealthCare to have
a healthcare presence on the west side of town, particularly when the
new facility opens,” said Bren Lowe, CEO of Livingston HealthCare.
The location is also ideal for serving tourist needs as this service will
be highly used by both visitors and community residents.
The services provided by this facility will offer patients another local
alternative to seek timely medical care. There will be onsite X-Ray, lab
services, and a medical team to care for pressing but non-emergent medical
- Fevers, Coughs & Flu
- Sore Throats
- Cuts, Abrasions & Lacerations
- Fractures, Strains & Sprains
- Upset Stomach & Vomiting
- Allergic Reactions
- Acute Back and Neck Pain
- Insect Bites & Rashes
- And Other Medical Needs
UrgentCare will be open seven days a week and will accept all patients with all insurance
coverages as well as self-pay patients. Appointments will not be necessary,
although the convenience of scheduling an appointment online or over the
phone will be available.
