Family Practice Associates Opening QuickCare Clinic in Sullivan
Sullivan, IN, April 28, 2014– On May 5, 2014, Family Practice Associates, in conjunction with Sullivan County Community Hospital, will open the Family Practice Associates QuickCare Clinic at the east end of the Sullivan County Community Hospital. Staffed by nurse practitioners, the Family Practice Associates QuickCare will offer a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician or do not need urgent attention at the Emergency Room.
Patients may visit the QuickCare Clinic for treatment of minor and common illnesses such as sore throats, ear aches, seasonal allergies, colds, flu, pink eye, minor skin conditions, bronchitis, insect stings, athlete's foot, and poison ivy. In addition to providing care for non-life-threatening emergencies, the clinic also will provide X-ray and imaging services through SCCH. DOT physicals, pre-employment health screenings, and laboratory services will be available.
Patients will receive treatment on a walk-in basis. No appointments will be taken. Most insurance plans are accepted and payments and insurance co-pays are expected at the time of service. QuickCare will accept cash, check and credit cards.
According to Michelle Franklin, SCCH CEO, "The main purpose of the QuickCare Clinic is to give the community an option to receive prompt medical care for minor injuries and illnesses without waiting for an appointment with their family physician. For well child visits, prescription refills, or monitoring for chronic conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes, patients will be referred to their provider’s office.”
