Nuvance Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Opens First Center in Carmel

New urgent care location seamlessly connects residents to Nuvance Health’s robust healthcare network closer to home

CARMEL, NY (February 5, 2024) – Nuvance Health-GoHealth Urgent Care opened a new center in Carmel today , providing an affordable and accessible healthcare option for people who live and work in the Hudson Valley.

The new center is conveniently located in the Carmel ShopRite Plaza at 186 Route 52, near the Carmel Cinema entrance, and in the same shopping center as Nuvance Health Primary Care. It is less than one mile from downtown Carmel and about four miles from Nuvance Health’s Putnam Hospital on Stoneleigh Ave.

Patients can quickly and easily see a Nuvance Health-GoHealth urgent care provider for diagnosis and treatment of non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries. They can also receive seamless referrals to Nuvance Health’s robust network of primary and specialty care providers when necessary.

“Having easy access to high-quality care is essential for our community's health,” said Dr. Reed Idriss, medical director, Nuvance Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “We are committed to expanding our urgent care network and are excited to open our new center in Carmel, bringing convenient and affordable care to where our patients live and work."

About the Carmel center

The center features an award-winning design that includes bold colors, wood accents and an open floor plan to foster a comfortable patient experience. The center’s warm color palette and lighting also ensure patients feel a sense of ease and healing at every stage of their visit.

The new location provides care for the whole family, offering patients aged six months and older a wide array of services for conditions including flu, fever, earaches, insect bites, sprains, simple fractures, eye injuries and cuts requiring stitches. It is open every day, including holidays. Regular hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Sunday.

The Carmel location follows the openings of centers in Poughkeepsie, Kingston and Wappingers Falls, which opened last year under the new partnership. Nuvance Health-GoHealth plans to open additional centers throughout the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County, Conn., in 2024 and beyond.

Seamless convenience and connections to high-quality care

The new Nuvance Health-GoHealth center provides the community with a more affordable option for high-quality and efficient care outside of higher-cost settings such as emergency rooms. It also provides a direct connection to Nuvance Health’s robust care network and medical specialists.

Patients can walk into any Nuvance Health-GoHealth center or use Nuvance Health-GoHealth’s online “save-a-spot” tool, which allows patients to save time by securing their spot in line, checking in and completing registration before arriving.
