Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care has announced the opening of its newest center in Park Slope on Monday, August 21. This brings the total number of Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers to two in Brooklyn and 37 throughout the New York Metro area.
The facility was designed to create transparency and comfort for patients, as well as the center’s team. The center’s exam rooms are 25-50 percent larger than the average urgent care center in order to accommodate families. Its color scheme, lighting and music create a warm and inviting environment that facilitates healing. The center is equipped to handle a higher acuity patient than a physician’s office, with x-ray and laboratory services on site.
The partnership between Northwell Health and GoHealth Urgent Care allows the facility to bring high quality clinical care paired with industry-leading customer experience, innovative technology and award-winning design. When a patient walks into the center, they will be treated within the four walls of the center and referred within the larger Northwell Health network for additional follow-up care.
The health center will offer a variety of services to patients, including treatment for colds, flu, minor skin lacerations, sports injuries, x-ray and lab services and is in network with most major insurance plans.
The center will be open 365 days a year, 8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Friday, and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
This opening follows that of the first Northwell Health-GoHealth Urgent Care facility in Brooklyn, which opened in Williamsburg in February.
