Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Opens First Center in Huntersville, North Carolina

New, state-of-the-art urgent care for the Huntersville community

 

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C., Nov. 18, 2019 Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has opened its first urgent care in Huntersville, North Carolina, just north of uptown Charlotte at 9121 Sam Furr Rd. The new center is in Northcross Commons alongside Whole Foods Market, just off exit 25 on Interstate 77, providing the community with better access to high quality health care services.

 

“We are thrilled to offer the Huntersville community the Novant Health-GoHealth experience, which begins before they even set foot in our centers,” said Kirsten P. Jones, North Carolina market president of GoHealth Urgent Care. “With tools such as online and mobile check-ins and wait times posted online, we provide easier access while delivering the remarkable, quality care that patients have come to expect from Novant Health.”

 

The new, state-of-the-art urgent care center is designed to put its patients first. For example, it features an open floor plan so patients can easily interact with the clinical staff and larger treatment and exam rooms to accommodate patients' families and friends. And, the company's online tools make getting urgent care at the center as effortless as possible. Wait times at the Huntersville center are published on its website. Patients can use the website to select what time they show up, and online check-in and registration can be completed on patients' smartphones and tablets in order to further minimize wait times before seeing a clinical provider.

 

The Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care network currently has 8 centers in Charlotte and 13 overall in North Carolina, with more centers opening before the end of 2019.

 

“What makes the Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care partnership special is our commitment to enhancing the patient experience at every level,” said Saad Ehtisham, president and chief operating officer of Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center.“ We are excited for patients in the Huntersville community to experience our innovative, personalized care model, which includes convenient on-line check-in and quality medical care delivered in a comfortable setting. It really sets us apart.”

 

All centers feature X-ray, on-site laboratories, and electronic medical record integration with Novant Health. All Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers offer extended hours and are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, including holidays.
