(Newswire.net – October 17, 2014) Cromwell, CT – Cromwell today celebrated the opening of its only state of the art walk-in medical clinic, providing area residents access to high quality, affordable, convenient health-care services. Decorated with artwork created by local high-school students, the Cromwell location is the first of a series of care centers to be opened by Connecticut Urgent Care Centers throughout the state.
“We are thrilled to open our first center here in Cromwell,” said Connecticut Urgent Care Centers Medical Administrator Linda Gallacher. “Too often people make unneeded trips to the emergency department for non life-threatening illness and injuries, because they are unable to wait for an appointment with their primary care physician, “ said Gallacher. “We offer an alternative to both the high cost of emergency department visits, and the inconvenience of scheduling an appointment with a primary care physician.”
The Cromwell location of Connecticut Urgent Care Centers provides patients easy, affordable access to expert treatment by physicians, physician assistants and other medical professionals experienced in urgent care, emergency departments, and family medicine practices.
In addition to urgent care for non life-threatening injuries, the spacious facility offers walk-in diagnosis and treatment for a wide variety of family illnesses including ear, eye, bronchial, bladder and sinus infections, along with on-site prescriptions, x-ray, pulmonary function testing, ECG, and pre-employment and school physical exams. Common vaccinations such as influenza, shingles, and tetanus are also available daily.
“We are proud to be part of the solution to rising health care costs,” said Connecticut Urgent Care Centers Physician, Dr. Usman Ramzan. “Connecticut Urgent Care Centers will provide the community with increased access to the finest quality, compassionate care that saves money as well as time.”
Located at 136 Berlin Road, the facility is open Monday through Friday, 8am–8pm, and weekends 9am-6pm. All services are available with no appointment needed, and most health insurance, including Medicare, is accepted.
