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 needs including:
- 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
Livingston HealthCare’s 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.
