LUTHERVILLE, MD April 27, 2020 – ChoiceOne Urgent Care (ChoiceOne), a part of the University of Maryland Health System (UMMS), announced today they have successfully launched their new ChoiceOne Virtual Care services.
To adapt to the needs of the community, ChoiceOne, has been working diligently to launch this new service for patients during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. ChoiceOne is one of the first urgent cares to launch such a program in all of Maryland. Their new virtual care visit option allows for patients to seek care from the convenience and comfort of their homes, keeping them safe from additional exposure and from spreading of the virus. Each visit is conducted virtually, allowing for a video session to take place between the patient and a licensed medical provider.
“Providing superior care to our patients has always been our first priority, prior to and during the coronavirus pandemic,” says Dr. Nicholas Bower, ChoiceOne’s Chief Medical Officer. We have continued to monitor the coronavirus situation as it is changing quickly and are taking significant steps in our urgent centers and now outside of them, to reduce the chance of transmitting the virus. We are doing everything we can to make sure that you and we are all safe.”
Anyone experiencing an urgent need that is not-life-threatening could benefit from a virtual care visit. For more information about ChoiceOne’s Virtual Care visit option or anyone who is interested in registering for a virtual telehealth visit, visit www.choiceoneuc.com/services/virtualcare.
