 Novant Health and GoHealth Urgent Care Announce Partnership to Develop a Large Urgent Care Network Across North Carolina

Exclusive State-Wide Partnership Will Bring Unparalleled Patient Experiences to Neighborhoods in Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Beyond

 

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (October 8, 2018) – GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the nation’s fastest-growing urgent care companies, and Novant Health, a four-state integrated network of physician clinics, outpatient facilities and hospitals, today announced they have entered into an exclusive, integrated partnership to create a large network of urgent care centers across North Carolina. Phase 1 of the partnership will include at least 15 centers in greater Charlotte and Winston-Salem. The Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers will provide local communities with effortless access to high quality, patient-focused care.

 

“We are thrilled to announce this new partnership between Novant Health and GoHealth Urgent Care,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care. “Combining the remarkable care that Novant Health has long been known for with our innovative, consumer-focused approach to urgent care will enable us to provide more personalized and deeply connected care, complete with integrated electronic medical records and unmatched online check-in and pre-registration tools. Our patients will also have access to same-day or next-day appointments with Novant Health specialists and other high-quality caregivers across Charlotte and Winston-Salem when needed.”

 

Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care will open its first state-of-the-art urgent care centers in Winston-Salem in early 2019, followed shortly thereafter by a number of new and renovated centers in the greater Charlotte area over the next 12-18 months. The partnership plans to continue expansion into 2020 and beyond. Several existing Novant Health urgent care clinics will continue to operate during the partnership transition.

 

“For Novant Health, our choice to expand our services with GoHealth Urgent Care is based on our commitment to continue providing quality care that is accessible, affordable and convenient for patients,” said Carl Armato, president and CEO of Novant Health. “This new consumer-focused healthcare concept will allow us to reach more patients and better meet their needs right where they live, work and play.”

 

The Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers will provide unparalleled patient experiences and serve as a more convenient and comfortable after-hours alternative to costlier, more time-consuming emergency room visits. Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers will also be available for everyday illnesses and non-life threatening injuries such as colds, flu, fever, asthma, allergies, minor skin lacerations, cuts, burns, urinary tract infections, sports injuries, fractures, sprains and strains. Patients who seek medical treatment at Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers will be able to conveniently check-in online or just walk in to receive quick and caring service. All of the new centers will also include on-site laboratory and X-ray services. Current Novant Health patients will enjoy the same integrated electronic health record, with full access to Novant Health’s online portal, MyChart, as they do throughout the Novant Health network. Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care will accept most commercial insurance plans, as well as Medicare and Medicaid.

Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care and Cohen Children’s Medical Center Partner to provide pediatric urgent care services

Two pediatric-only urgent care centers now open in Five Towns and East Northport, NY

 

NEW YORK, N.Y. (September 6, 2018)In collaboration with Cohen Children’s Medical Center, Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, the partnership between New York state’s largest health system and one of the country’s largest and fastest-growing urgent care companies, today announced the opening of state-of-the-art, pediatric urgent care centers in Five Towns and East Northport, Long Island.

 

These two pediatric-only facilities focus specifically on infants, children and adolescents, giving families greater access to personalized, convenient and affordable medical care. The Cohen Children’s/Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers provide unparalleled experiences and serve as a child-friendly alternative to costlier, more time-consuming emergency room visits for non-life-threatening injuries like ear infections, fever, diarrhea, burns, cuts, bladder infections, colds, coughs or asthma.

 

“As a leader in pediatric care, our patients now have the option to visit Cohen Children’s Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers to receive the highest-quality pediatric care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, particularly those that happen unexpectedly or outside of regular business hours,” said Charles Schleien, MD, executive director of Cohen Children’s Medical Center, and senior vice president, executive director and chair of pediatric services at Northwell Health. “We are pleased to bring best-in-class pediatric urgent care to the Five Towns and East Northport communities.”

 

Designed to create an effortless experience for families and their children, the new pediatric urgent care centers feature large, engaging exam rooms that can accommodate strollers and siblings, child-sized rest rooms, germ-free entertainment tablets, and comforting colors and accents proven to help reduce anxiety in children. Available seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., the Five Towns and East Northport pediatric urgent care centers are staffed by board-certified pediatricians trained in Cohen Children’s high-quality care protocols and procedures. In addition, as part of the Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care network, the Five Towns and East Northport centers are integrated with Northwell Health’s and Cohen Children’s electronic health records to ensure uninterrupted and informed care. The centers also accept most major insurance plans.

 

“This partnership combines Cohen Children’s Medical Center’s pediatric expertise with Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care’s leadership in urgent care to address the need for greater pediatric care options close to home,” said Adam Boll, vice president of operations at Northwell Ventures. “We look forward to serving the families of Five Towns and East Northport in settings that are designed to welcome our youngest patients.”

 

 

 

For the 12th consecutive year, Cohen Children’s Medical Center was ranked among the nation’s best by U.S. News & World Report, earning top 50 national rankings for exceptional care in eight pediatric specialties – more than any other hospital on Long Island or Queens.

 

The Five Towns pediatric urgent care center is located at 1332 Peninsula Boulevard, and the East Northport pediatric urgent care center is located at 4199 Jericho Turnpike. Both centers are open and accepting patients as of September 7. The Five Towns center will be hosting a grand opening ceremony on September 27 at 10 a.m. ET.

First Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care Locations Open in Oklahoma City

New centers offer patients better options for accessible, convenient, community-based care

 

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (Aug. 30, 2018) – Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care is opening two new state-of-the-art urgent care centers in North Edmond and Oklahoma City. The two centers are the first of many that will soon open in the Oklahoma City metro area. GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the country’s largest and fastest growing urgent care companies, and Mercy, one of the most innovative health systems in the U.S., have already begun developing urgent care centers in St. Louis and Springfield, Missouri, and will soon begin opening centers in northwest Arkansas as well.

Mercy-GoHealth’s easy-to-use online check-in and pre-registration system, dynamic wait clocks, mobile X-ray capabilities and award-winning center design are just a few features of this new model that will benefit local families, employers and other community members.

Following a welcome event on Aug. 30th, both Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers in North Edmond at 1380 W. Covell Road, Suite 132, and North Oklahoma City location at 12220 N. Macarthur, Suite D, will open to patients in need. The Mercy-GoHealth centers welcome patients year-round, seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

“We are excited to open our first urgent care center to customers in the greater Oklahoma City area, further expanding our multi-market joint venture with Mercy,” said Todd Latz, CEO of GoHealth Urgent Care. “We are focused on delivering unparalleled customer experiences and high-quality care to communities across Oklahoma City, and to demonstrating to our newest market how effortless it can be to return to better health.”  

Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care treats adults and children 6 months and older with non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries such as colds, flu, fever, asthma, allergies, emphysema, minor skin lacerations, cuts, burns, urinary tract infections, fractures, sprains and strains. Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care accepts most major insurance plans.

“We regularly ask our patients how we can better serve them and what we hear consistently is they want quick, convenient, affordable care close to where they live and work,” said Donn Sorensen, regional president of Mercy in Oklahoma. Mercy’s partnership with GoHealth is a response to those needs, and we’re proud to offer a new type of urgent care experience.”

Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care patients will experience visits that on average cost substantially less than a trip to the emergency room. The open floor layout of the centers enables caregivers to directly engage with patients, in comfortable and spacious exam rooms that can accommodate entire families. Every center is equipped with on-site X-ray and laboratory services for patient convenience.

Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care is on track to launch more than 30 urgent care centers across Mercy’s service area, including additional locations in Oklahoma. Information about each existing location as well as future locations can be found at www.gohealthuc.com/Mercy.
