Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care treats adults and children six months and older for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries such as flu, fever, asthma, allergies, minor cuts and burns, pink eye, urinary tract infections, sports injuries, fractures, sprains and strains, and more. COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody testing is also available at all centers in St. Louis and St. Charles counties.

“Our long-standing partnership with Mercy enables us to bring high quality, customer-focused urgent care services to the greater Washington area,” said Sherry Buebendorf, Market President for Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Care. “Our new center will enable us to provide unparalleled customer experiences, including easily accessible online tools to families in another Mercy market.”

“Over the last two years, there have been a dozen Mercy-GoHealth Urgent Cares opened in the surrounding counties and we’re excited to bring this model to patients in Franklin County,” said Dr. David Chalk, President of Mercy Clinic Four Rivers division. “With GoHealth Urgent Care’s national reputation for high patient satisfaction scores, this will be a perfect combination with Mercy as we strive to provide our patients the very best in accessible and connected care. By joining forces, we are able to focus on caring for our patients when, where and how they want it.”

Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Offers Video Visits to Patients of All Ages

New platform allows urgent care providers to provide convenient urgent care to patients and evaluate patients for COVID-19 testing

 

June 09, 2020 – Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care launched its video visit platform, providing patients as young as one year old with urgent care services from the comfort of their homes. In addition to assessing and treating a host of non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care can also see in its centers, patients can use video visits to get screened for COVID-19 diagnostic and antibody testing.

Patients can quickly and effortlessly access Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care video visits online at www.gohealthuc.com/nc. If their Novant Health-GoHealth provider determines during the video visit that they need to be seen in person, patients are directed a nearby Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care center where they will complete their visit – only registering and paying once.

“People who access our video visits will experience the same excellent service and quality of care we’ve provided all along in North Carolina,” said Kirsten P. Jones, Market President for Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “We want the communities we serve to know we are here for you, whether in-person or virtually, and we are proud to be able to expand our services to more provide safe and convenient care during this difficult time.”

Video visits play a crucial role in the fight against COVID-19, allowing patients who have COVID-19 symptoms or are interested in COVID-19 testing to be evaluated by a Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care provider over video without leaving the safety of their homes. Patients who need a COVID-19 diagnostic test will be directed by the provider to their nearest Novant Health-GoHealth Urgent Care sample collection site, where they will be met curbside by our team members.

The medical records from video visits are integrated with Novant Health’s electronic medical record system, allowing patients who have a Novant Health primary care provider, pediatrician or specialist to easily share details of their video visits with their other Novant Health providers.

“Our pediatric urgent care physicians are part of the nationally-ranked Cohen Children’s Medical Center continuum of care, and with the launch of our pediatric virtual care platform, we are able to extend this high-quality standard of care to pediatric patients where ever they are physically located in the State of New York,” said Adam Boll, Executive Director of Joint Venture Operations at Northwell Health. “This is an exciting step in our continued journey to provide our patients with convenient, specialized care in the setting of their choice.”

Dr. Lynda Gerberg, Lead Pediatrician at Cohen Children’s Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, sees Virtual Care as an exciting tool to connect parents and providers more seamlessly. “We’re now able to conveniently treat a variety of common concerns that kids frequently have, such as colds, pink eye, rash, seasonal allergies and more with Virtual Visits, saving time for busy families,” she said.

Parents can learn more about pediatric services and book a Virtual Visit online (https://www.gohealthuc.com/nyc/virtual-visits-peds) while having the peace of mind that expert pediatricians from Cohen Children's Northwell Health-GoHealth Pediatric Urgent Care centers are available for their family seven days a week, 365 days a year.
