Next week Rideout Health Group (FRHG) and Peach Tree Healthcare (PTH), both non-profit community healthcare systems, will begin a new collaboration to offer round-the-clock, cost-effective urgent care at Marysville Immediate Care, adjacent to Rideout Memorial Hospital in Marysville.
Starting June 20, the Immediate Care facility, whose current hours are 7am to 10pm daily, will now operate 24/7.
Marysville Immediate Care, operated by Peach Tree Healthcare, is located at 724 Fifth Street, across a parking lot from the entrance to the Rideout Emergency Dept. Board Certified physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and other healthcare staff treat minor illnesses and injuries, including infections, respiratory problems, cuts, burns, sprains, strains and fractures. No appointment is necessary, and there is free and ample dedicated patient parking right next to the building. Rideout's laboratory and imaging departments will provide services for Immediate Care patients around the clock, with Rideout staff also available to act as couriers for lab materials and escorts for patients.
"The goal of our collaboration is to improve both the experience and health outcomes of patients in our community, and the affordability of care. Expanding Immediate Care's hours of operation to 24/7 will further improve easy access to primary care providers and treatment for people with medical needs that do not require emergency treatment," said Terri Hamilton, CEO, FRHG. "This goal is consistent with our mission to provide superior healthcare to everyone in our region, regardless of their ability to pay."
"We look forward to collaborating with Rideout Health Group to improve community access to primary care, medical services 24/7. Together, we expect to achieve excellent results for patients with immediate but non-emergency medical needs," said Tom Walther, CEO, Peach Tree Healthcare.
Patients at the Immediate Care facility who are determined to need treatment at or admitting to a hospital will be referred or transferred by ambulance to Rideout's Emergency Department, just around the corner. "Rideout Memorial Hospital's Emergency Department, physicians and highly skilled staff, remain ready to care for anyone with trauma, medical emergencies, or who requires hospital admission," said Hamilton.
