Oneida, NY – The traditional model for healthcare is changing quickly and the desire for more convenient options is on the rise. Today’s patient is looking for easy access and walk-in solutions for their everyday healthcare needs.
In January due to the increasing demand, Quick Care expanded its hours of service to better meet the needs of its surrounding community. They are now open Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 8:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
Quick Care provides a walk-in medical solution for non-emergency care. With laboratory and X-Ray on site, common conditions that can be treated are colds, minor cuts, sprains, back pain, rash, sinus pain, vomiting, allergic reactions, ear infections, minor broken bones, sore throat, and stitches. They do not provide treatment for conditions related to chest pain, difficulty breathing or major trama.
In addition to providing patients with convenience, Quick Care is also a more affordable option. “Quick Care operates similar to a primary care office. This type of care dictates a lower deductible or copay for patients compared to an Urgent Care or Emergency Department,” said Kevin Prosser, Director of Community Relations at Oneida Healthcare.
Quick Care will also work with your physician’s office to coordinate the continuity of your care. “We always recommend that patients see their primary care physician whenever possible, but if they are not available, Quick Care is another option,” said Prosser. “After a patient’s treatment, Quick Care medical staff will contact the patient’s primary care office to coordinate the patient’s follow-up care if necessary,” he added.
Quick Care is located at 357 Genesee Street in Oneida. For more information, visit them on the web at yourquickcare.com. They are not open on major holidays.
