This time last year, a partnership between Novant Health in Winston-Salem and Charlotte-based GoHealth Urgent Care made public the joint-vision of opening more than a dozen urgent care clinics between both regions.

To date, more than 12 urgent care facilities have opened.

Add to that list a relocated practice in Kernersville. Novant Health-GoHealth Urgnet Care Kernersville has moved from Gateway Center Drive to a more accessible location at 794 S. Main St.

Additional urgent care centers are slated to open later this year, Novant Health said Thursday.

The newly renovated Main Street location will offer interactive visits and web-based tools such as online check-in and registration accessible from patients' smartphones.

“Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care blends personal connection with technology-driven convenience,” said Dr. Travis Howell, clinical physician executive with Novant Health.

“We’re not just delivering convenience for patients as they wait to be seen, we’re closing the gap on follow-up care through our integrated electronic medical records and post-visit summaries delivered directly to primary care and other relevant providers.”
