Second clinic of Kathy's Urgent Care (UC) has been opened in the month of May at 856 Cromwell Avenue in Rocky Hill. The latest location will meet the growing requirement of area residents for timely, expert medical care, specifically after hours and on weekends. On May 20, the public was invited to a Grand Opening Celebration at 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and got free wellness exams, tours of the facility, and a chance to meet Dr. Thomas Brown and his professional staff.
Dr. Bown, Chief Medical Officer, points out, "Our experience in Wethersfield indicates the significance of locally owned, quality health care for our community. Expansion to Rocky Hill permits us to serve folks there more conveniently." Dr. Brown, a board-certified internal medicine and urgent care physician, asserts the significance of treating every patient with respect. As he elaborates, "We give care without the hassle of long wait times or inconvenient hours. And we accept most insurance plans as well as sufferers without insurance. Our aim is to give the health care that people deserve."
Kathy's Urgent Care’s expansion depicts rapidly increasing changes in the delivery of health care in the United States (US). People who get a stomach bug or who cut their finger while slicing a tomato on a weekend now do not need to endure long waits or the expense of an emergency room (ER) visit, or when they are not able to see their primary care doctor. Others who require a quick physical exam for immigration or employment often cannot wait for weeks to see their regular physician. These situations have developed a niche that urgent care clinics, such as Kathy's Urgent Care, fill. And since reports of sufferer visits can be forwarded to primary care physicians and are commonly paid for by existing insurance plans, individuals don’t face any fragmentation of care.
Two walk-in clinics is being operated by the Kathy’s Urgent Care to treat non-life-threatening wounds and illnesses and offer physical exams and other preventative services. Locations: 856 Cromwell Ave., Rocky Hill, CT (860-967-32306), and 672 Silas Deane Highway, Wethersfield, CT (860-967-3600). Hours: Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m.; Sat-Sun, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
