PORTLAND, OR June 19, 2019 GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the nation’s fastest-growing urgent care companies, and Legacy Health, a nonprofit, locally owned organization based in Portland, Oregon, and serving Oregon, Southwest Washington and the Mid-Willamette Valley, today announced the launch of a new service enabling patients across the state to schedule virtual visits with urgent care professionals from Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers.

 

Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care’s new virtual visits make it easy for patients to connect with a healthcare professional remotely. The virtual visits are broken into three simple steps:

  1. Go online to select your symptoms and schedule a time
  2. Fill out your demographic info
  3. Connect to the video session with your provider

 

Everything about the virtual visit experience is designed with the same diligence we associate with in-person care. Each visit is staffed with certified providers who currently work in one of our urgent care centers. All medical records are integrated with Legacy Health, allowing access during the visit to up to date medication and treatment history, and providing an easy transfer of next steps to your PCP or specialist. Virtual visits can be made for a wide range of medical conditions including cough and cold, pink eye, flu, allergies, bug bites, and many others. The visits are also in-network with most insurance plans, similar to an in-person visit. In addition, patients can obtain prescriptions as needed through their virtual visits with a Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care professional.

 

“The primary goal of Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care is to provide the best and most convenient service for our customers – wherever they are,” said David Tep, Northwest Market President Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care. “We know that sometimes when you need medical care, you may be unable to visit our centers or would rather stay at home. Now patients can get the help they need from anywhere – from the same providers they trust every day.”

 

Virtual visits can be scheduled Monday through Friday from 8 am to 8 PM, and on Saturday and Sunday from 9 am to 5 pm at www.GoHealthUC.com. Following a virtual visit, patients in the Portland area will be seamlessly connected with their 4 closest Legacy-GoHealth Urgent Care centers for any extra follow up.
