New Services and Hours to Begin February 1st Under Partnership
Prince Frederick, MD, December 17, 2018- CalvertHealth has partnered with ChoiceOne Urgent Care to expand services and hours beginning February 1 at all three of its locations in Dunkirk, Prince Frederick and Solomons. Services will continue at the urgent care centers as they are renovated with a new, updated look.
“We are proud to partner with ChoiceOne to help meet the growing healthcare needs of our community and expand the conveniences that so many patients need in their busy lives,” said CalvertHealth President and CEO Dean Teague. He continued, “Through our partnership with ChoiceOne, we are continuing to provide high-quality health care in close coordination with our local Calvert County physicians.”
ChoiceOne CEO Butch Marino stated, “This is an exciting opportunity for ChoiceOne and the growing Calvert community as we plan to begin operations in February 2019. This joint venture partnership will allow us to leverage our strengths, expand access to superior patient-centered care and enable us to provide outstanding care coordination.” He went on to add, “CalvertHealth values the patient experience as much as ChoiceOne does, and that is what fundamentally makes this collaboration so valuable.”
In addition to CalvertHealth, ChoiceOne has partnered with many other health systems across Maryland and Georgia. All ChoiceOne Urgent Care centers feature private exam rooms, a triage area, and state-of-the-art equipment, including an on-site x-ray facility; all in a new, welcoming environment. ChoiceOne providers diagnose and treat non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, such as colds, flu, broken bones, infections, and sprains. ChoiceOne’s expanded services include preoperative evaluations, sports physicals, travel health vaccinations, and occupational health services, including pre-employment physicals, drug testing, and workers’ compensation.
Providers see patients seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., including most holidays. For added convenience, walk-in visits are always welcome or patients can check-in online at www.ChoiceOneUC.com. ChoiceOne accepts most insurance plans and governmental plans.
