University of Maryland Shore Regional Health Partners with ChoiceOne to Offer Accessible Urgent Care Services on the Eastern Shore
University of Maryland Shore Regional Health and ChoiceOne Urgent Care have entered into an agreement to open and operate two urgent care centers on the Eastern Shore. The first center—located at 8 Denton Plaza in Denton— is now open. The second center is anticipated to open in Easton by fall 2016.
ChoiceOne healthcare providers treat patients—from pediatrics to geriatrics—who need immediate medical care, but their illness and injury might not warrant a visit the emergency room. For instance, a patient can visit urgent care for colds, broken bones, earaches, headaches, infections, flu, lacerations nausea/upset stomach, sprains and cuts. Patients should visit the emergency room if they are experiencing symptoms such as abdominal/chest pain, heart palpitations/attack, loss of vision, severe burns, shortness of breath or uncontrollable bleeding.
ChoiceOne Urgent Care offers:
- Medical providers with experience in family practice and/or emergency medicine
- Care in a spa-like, soothing atmosphere
- Pre-operative exams and sports physicals
- Occupational health services, including pre-employment physicals, drug testing, workers’ compensation and vaccinations
- X-ray, laboratory services and on-site medication dispensing
- Treatment in brand-new facilities with state-of-the-art amenities
- Care available seven days a week–8 a.m. to 8 p.m.–including most holidays
- Walk-in care, no appointment needed
- Referrals to UM SRH primary or specialty care providers
As a result of ChoiceOne opening, University of Maryland Shore Convenient Care at Denton, operated by UM Shore Regional Health since October 2013, will no longer offer urgent care services at its 836 South 5th Avenue location. ChoiceOne is working in close collaboration with UM SRH leadership to ensure that the patient and staff transition process is as seamless as possible. University of Maryland Community Medical Group – Primary Care providers, Katherine Cook, MD, Kim Herman, MD and Wafik Zaki, MD, will continue to see their primary care patients at the 5th Avenue location.
The agreement with UM SRH is ChoiceOne’s third hospital partnership in Maryland. ChoiceOne also partners with the University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center and University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health.
