When it comes to cuts, breaks and minor illnesses such as the flu, you want convenient access to quality urgent care. Adventist HealthCare has three urgent care centers to serve residents in Montgomery and Prince George’s counties.
In May, Centra Care Adventist HealthCare Urgent Care opened in Germantown. In July, the newest center opened in Laurel. Adventist HealthCare’s first urgent care center opened in Rockville in March 2015.
Convenience and Compassion
Centra Care Adventist HealthCare Urgent Care offers quality and fast care, easy access and a lower-cost alternative to emergency departments. At Centra Care, patients can receive treatment for a full range of minor illnesses and injuries with extended evening and weekend hours. Many people can come to the center and receive care in less than an hour.
“Strong access to urgent care centers helps to cut down on expensive emergency room visits by offering care for non-life-threatening health conditions at times and locations that are convenient for patients,” says Richard Samuel, MD, a physician at the Laurel location and a member of Southern Asian Seventh-day Adventist.
By offering quality urgent care services, Adventist HealthCare broadens its comprehensive network of health services and fulfills its mission of improving the health of people and communities.
