Rapid COVID-19 testing, as well as treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses, will be provided seven days a week
New center will include a dedicated space for occupational medicine services
SYRACUSE, NY — WellNow Urgent Care, one of the country’s fastest-growing urgent care providers, announced today that it will open the doors to its newest center in Syracuse on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Located at 1600 Erie Boulevard E., Syracuse, NY 13210, the new facility offers timely treatment for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. with no appointment needed.
The new center will feature a dedicated space for a wide range of occupational medicine services, including DOT/19A physicals, Workers’ Compensation assistance, respirator fit exams, audiometry and more. Area businesses and self-insured employers from a range of industries – including manufacturing, warehousing, retail, nursing homes, vocational colleges, bakeries and more – can partner with WellNow to develop a custom occupational medicine program to fit their individual needs.
“We’re proud to partner with local businesses to support the health and safety of their workers,” said John Radford, M.D., President at WellNow Urgent Care. “Providing accessible and convenient care to the community is our top priority, particularly as people look for safe ways to return to Spring sports and travel while the COVID-19 pandemic continues.”
Urgent care centers are an increasingly important part of the U.S. healthcare marketplace, providing patients with much-needed access to quality care with shorter wait times, walk-in and same day care options, and lower costs than the traditional emergency room. The new center in Syracuse will provide timely service for ailments such as sprains, burns, colds and allergies while also providing on-site X-rays, lab testing and physicals. Rapid COVID-19 testing is also available with no appointment necessary. Patients can walk in or schedule a visit online.
Urgent care services are treated on a walk-in basis, or patients may also visit WellNow.com to check in online and view up-to-date wait times. Patients can also connect with a WellNow provider 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using the company’s telehealth platform. WellNow accepts most insurance, including Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis and Veterans Affairs TriWest.
