NextCare Urgent Care Helps Fill the HealthCare Gap with Affordable, Convenient Care Offered at their Three New Walk-In Medical Clinic Locations in Kennesaw, Lawrenceville and Mableton, Georgia. These New NextCare Locations, All Opening in November 2009, Will Also Offer Patients Who Come for a Visit Access to $1 Onsite Prescriptions*!

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 13, 2009

In an effort to provide many families and individuals with access to timely health care, NextCare has added three new walk-in medical clinic locations in Georgia – including a location in Kennesaw, Lawrenceville and Mableton. These three new immediate care locations join NextCare’s existing Atlanta clinic, in the Edgewood Retail District, that opened in October of 2006. All four Georgia locations will be offering $1 prescriptions* to those who visit NextCare for patient care (excluding members of governmental health plans; other restrictions may apply, see below).

NextCare provides extensive walk-in medical care, including occupational medicine services, sports physicals, x-rays, lab services, select immunizations and on-site prescriptions, to those of all ages and is available to treat patients every day, as well as in the evenings and on weekends. NextCare sets themselves apart from other urgent cares and is known for bringing together service-driven healthcare and innovative medical technology to their delivery of medicine – evident by the unique services they offer such as WAHOO (Wait at Home or Office) where the patients can skip the lobby and wait in the comfort of their own home or office until NextCare calls them when their exam room is ready; or NextCare’s use of kiosk check-in, electronic medical records so the patients don’t have to constantly fill out paperwork each time, digital x-rays, and online bill payment options.

“NextCare is very pleased to be able to expand our high-quality care to the residents and surrounding communities in Kennesaw, Lawrenceville and Mableton, Georgia,” stated Tracy Patterson, Executive Vice President of NextCare Urgent Care. “We are looking forward to meeting the growing need in these Georgia markets for convenient, affordable and readily accessible healthcare.”

The Kennesaw location, at 2953 Cobb Parkway NW, opened its doors to the public for patient care on Tuesday, November 10, 2009, at 8am. It is followed by the first day of operation in Lawrenceville at 3370 Sugarloaf Parkway on Tuesday, November 17th at 8am and in Mableton, Georgia, at 1025 Veteran's Memorial Highway on Monday, November 30th at 8am.

NextCare invites neighbors, families, Chamber members, local businesses and others in the community to join them for a grand opening celebration on Tuesday, November 17th between 11am-1pm at our Mableton location. Lunch will be provided, tours and prizes offered and staff will be available to answer any questions that individuals and families might have about services and offerings NextCare can provide for them, including an exciting offer of $1 prescriptions available at all NextCare locations in Georgia!

At the onset of NextCare’s three new grand openings, $1 prescriptions* will be offered at each of their four locations to patients who qualify for the discounted medications (visit http://www. nextcare. com/1dollar (http://www. nextcare. com/1dollar) for details and restrictions). Sick patients can save a trip to the pharmacy for most commonly prescribed medications and save money too by getting their prescriptions on-site after their visit to NextCare for only $1!

For those patients who may be uninsured, NextCare offers the ValueCare Medical Discount Program – allowing up to 50% savings on medical care during a visit for an annual membership of only $50 for the primary member. Additional family members can be included for only $15 per person. This affordable discount program can be purchased at any NextCare Urgent Care clinic or online at http://www. nextcare. com/valuecare (http://www. nextcare. com/valuecare).
