Beaumont Urgent Care has opened a new center in Troy, located at 2078 E. Big Beaver Road. This year, the Beaumont Network is growing to include 30 urgent care centers throughout Southeast Michigan.
The new Beaumont Urgent Care centers allow patients to access providers and facilities in the Beaumont Network quickly for minor injuries and illnesses at a reduced cost compared to a more expensive emergency room visit. Patients will get fast, efficient care. Expanded services like an in-house lab, X-ray and fiberglass splinting are also available.
“Beaumont is working with WellStreet, a company experienced with running patient-focused urgent care centers. We are eager to serve patients and families in Troy by providing quality care on their terms, with easy access at lower cost,” Bernice Sessa, M.D., medical director of Beaumont Urgent Care, said.
While services are not limited to Beaumont patients, the medical team at Beaumont Urgent Care centers can access the Beaumont Network electronic medical record to help doctors and nurses provide coordinated care. Patients are also encouraged to find a primary care physician, and staff can assist with coordinating necessary care for patients and physicians.
WellStreet’s CEO, Ron Lavater added, “Beaumont Urgent Care Center’s talented providers and staff are very focused on our patient’s experience. It is our goal to have patients in and out of our centers within an hour or less. We are thrilled to serve the community of Troy.” The new location is open seven-days-a-week, from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Weekend and evening hours allow recently hospitalized patients an opportunity for earlier evaluation and intervention should problems arise after hours. This easy access can reduce hospital readmission rates and decrease health care costs for patients and employers.
Urgent care centers are most appropriate for:
- cough, cold or sore throat
- rashes or skin irritations
- fever or flu-like symptoms
- minor lacerations
- minor orthopedic injuries
- mild intestinal illnesses
Patients experiencing signs of a heart attack, stroke or other serious symptoms should go directly to an emergency room. Always call 911 or go to an emergency room if you are experiencing severe or life-threatening medical symptoms. Visit www.beaumont.org/where-togo for more information.
