St. Luke’s Care Now medical director Robert Dolansky, DO, further explains, “St. Luke’s Care Now locations provide treatment for conditions that require immediate attention, but that are not serious enough to warrant a visit to the Emergency Room. This may include fever and flu-like symptoms, sinus infections, bronchitis, sprains, strains, broken bones, dislocations, cuts, minor burns, animal bites and other minor medical concerns.”
“Thankfully, not every medical need requires an Emergency Room visit,” says Joe Cunningham, Network Director, Urgent Care Services, St. Luke’s University Health Network. “St. Luke’s Care Now bridges the gap. Patients can walk right in to a St. Luke’s Care Now and be seen by a St. Luke’s primary care provider, making it the quick, practical, quality choice. Care is usually provided at a lower cost than an emergency room visit. ”
Care Now is not intended to replace an individual’s primary care physician or manage chronic health concerns In addition to walk-in medical care, St. Luke’s Care Now locations offer onsite diagnostic testing, including lab and X-ray services, and occupational medicine services to employers.
