LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ProHEALTH Care, the largest, independent, physician-run healthcare
The Extended Hours Centers provide primary medical care to all ProHEALTH Care patients, both adult and pediatric, every day of the year, even on holidays. There is no appointment required and it is exclusive for ProHEALTH Care patients. Patients receive the medical attention they need, when they need it without the high costs of walk-in clinics or unnecessary trips to emergency rooms.
"We are changing the way people think about healthcare delivery," said Zeyad Baker, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of ProHEALTH Care. "Patients want quality healthcare that is accessible and affordable. That's the thought behind the Extended Hours Center. We expanded the hours of primary care with our Extended Hours Centers to meet this need, and we will continue to improve our care delivery to further our truly patient-centric health system."
The ProHEALTH Care Extended Hours Centers in both Bethpage and Lake Success provide medical treatment for non-emergency medical needs, and all visits are billed as a PCP visit, which reduces overall cost for the patient. The opening of the second center is part of Dr. Baker's 2019 agenda to transform healthcare through new concepts and initiatives that lower overall medical costs and improve access without compromising the quality of care.
Like the original location, the Extended Hours Center in Bethpage will be equipped to treat both children and adults for routine non-emergency medical issues such as colds, coughs, fever, flu, strep and sore throat, migraines, earaches and infections. Additionally, the Extended Hours Center will treat more urgent medical needs that require immediate medical care such as mild allergic reactions, cuts or lacerations, fractures and dislocations, sprains and strains, and insect and animal bites, among many others. The center will provide on-site testing and treatments such as EKGs, X-rays, and other lab services. The Extended Hours Center will also provide preventative treatments such as the flu shot and Tdap shot.
