NANTICOKE IMMEDIATE CARE OPEN IN GEORGETOWN
Nanticoke Health Services is pleased to announce it is expanding services with the addition of Nanticoke Immediate Care located at 505 W Market Street in Georgetown. Nanticoke Immediate Care is open 7 days a week, no appointment needed, providing care for minor illnesses and injuries. Nanticoke Immediate Care is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Thomas Brown, Senior Vice President of Nanticoke Health Services and President of the Nanticoke Physician Network says, “The new immediate care service will not only bring additional health care providers to Georgetown but will also provide access to care without an appointment and will be open to the community evenings and weekends, making it easier for people who have other commitments during the day to access the care they need.”
Nanticoke Immediate Care is a part of the Nanticoke Physician Network. This means that for patients of the Nanticoke Physician Network, you will have secure, online access to view information about a visit to Nanticoke Immediate Care or any Nanticoke Physician Network doctor’s office visit. Additionally, physicians in the Nanticoke Physician Network share an electronic medical record. So, your Nanticoke physician can immediately view information about your immediate care visit. You simply need to provide your physician’s name during registration.
Mr. Brown notes, “For patients whose primary care physician is a member of the Nanticoke Physician Network, their doctor can easily see information on the care provided and any tests results completed during their visit to Nanticoke Immediate Care. This allows for a continuum of care for patients. We believe better communication means better care.” For patients whose physicians are not a part of the network, a standard report of the visit will be sent to your primary care provider. Again, you only need to provide your primary care physician’s name at the time of registration.
