GoHealth Urgent Care and Hartford HealthCare announced a joint-venture that will extend GoHealth Urgent Care's proven model of convenient and consumer-focused urgent care centers to Central and Eastern Connecticut. This partnership will provide patients greater access to innovative high-quality care, where and when they need it most. GoHealth Urgent Care and Hartford HealthCare plan to open up to 15 co-branded centers within an 18-month first phase of their relationship, beginning in spring 2017. The centers will feature electrostatic "smart glass" procedure rooms, transparent charting on a wide screen in each exam room, mobile x-ray equipment and a unified electronic medical record that can be accessed by caregivers across the Hartford HealthCare network. The joint-venture will pair GoHealth Urgent Care's patient satisfaction ratings, technological advancements and award-winning center and website designs with Hartford HealthCare's high-quality, fully integrated acute and ambulatory health services.
