Bon Secours to open first urgent-care center
- March 7, 2014
Bon Secours Virginia will open its first urgent-care center Monday in the Glen Allen area of Henrico County.
The facility, Bon Secours Good Health Express, will offer immediate primary care for nonemergency medical issues.
Located on Brook Road in Henrico, the urgent care center will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.
“As we continue our efforts to evolve with new health care legislation and manage the population’s health care needs, we see an urgent care facility as part of the continuum of care,” Michael Robinson, CEO of Memorial Regional Medical Center, Richmond Community Hospital and St. Francis Medical Center, said in statement. “This is another access point for our patients, and it assists with our effort to keep costs down for the consumer, as well as manage non-emergent care outside of the emergency department.”
Robinson also is CEO of all Bon Secours Richmond’s ambulatory facilities.
The urgent care center will be staffed by family-practice and internal medicine physicians as well as physicians trained in emergency care.
The nearly 6,500-square-foot facility will house a physician clinic, radiation and laboratory services, as well as offer e-script prescriptions to the adjacent Walgreens pharmacy.
Physicians will serve patients with chronic ailments and routine health issues such as colds and flu, allergic reactions, sinus infections, rashes, sprains and minor fractures.
No appointments are necessary and patients will be served on a first-come, first-served basis. Patients who require emergency medical care will be transported to Bon Secours Memorial Regional Medical Center.
Bon Secours Virginia employs about 12,000 people in seven hospitals, four in the Richmond area and three in Hampton Roads.
