Swedish Covenant Hospital’s two Immediate Care Centers, conveniently located in Sauganash and North Center, now allow patients to schedule appointments ahead of arrival. Patients can view availability and schedule an appointment within 24-48 hours via the Swedish Covenant Hospital website on their computer or mobile phone.
“This tool expands the ways community members can utilize our services which is a priority as we are a community resource first and foremost,” said Denise Grant, senior practice manager for the Sauganash and North Center Immediate Care locations. “The services we offer can help patients save time and money instead of potentially waiting for hours in an Emergency Room if the issue is not life-threatening.”
The process of booking an appointment using the website is quick and easy. Patients can search for available times categorized by morning, afternoon and night and choose the availability that works best for their schedule. New patients will be prompted to complete a short information card, while existing Swedish Covenant Medical Group (SCMG) patients can save time by logging in with the same username and password as their SCMG Patient Portal account.
Services offered by Swedish Covenant Hospital’s Immediate Care Centers include treatment for a wide range of injuries and illnesses for individuals 12 months and older, on-site lab and X-ray, flu shots and school and sport physicals, all with the personalized, friendly care you have grown to expect from Swedish Covenant Hospital.
“It’s great that Swedish Covenant Hospital now has Immediate Care Centers in two locations,” said Dr. Bruce McNulty, M.D., emergency room director at Swedish Covenant Hospital. “They allow patients with minor emergencies to access our expertise closer to home, and often without the waits that can occur unpredictably in an emergency department. Patients will find excellent care at our Immediate Care Centers.”
Walk-ins are still admitted to the center without an appointment.
