WellSpan Health launches 24/7 online urgent care
September 10, 2019
WellSpan Health is now offering a new convenient care option for non-emergency medical conditions through its new WellSpan Online Urgent Care service.
The new, 24/7 online service is available to all WellSpan patients and consumers.
With WellSpan Online Urgent Care, patients can see a doctor or advanced practice clinician anywhere and anytime – from a computer, tablet or smartphone. Once connected, patients receive live, real-time care – including a diagnosis, treatment plan and prescriptions, as needed. The cost is just $49 per visit and is comparable to a standard urgent care visit.
“WellSpan Online Urgent Care is just one more way we are delivering on our commitment to providing our patients with the care they need – when, where and how they want it,” said Thomas McGann, M.D., executive vice president for clinical practice, WellSpan Health.
Online Urgent Care is an on-demand virtual care option for patients – age 3 months and older –who have non-emergency care needs, from coughs and minor illnesses to muscle strains and joint pain.
Doctors and advanced practice clinicians treating patients through WellSpan Online Urgent Care are held to the same high standards as those providing care in traditional primary care and urgent care offices.
The service is just the latest convenient, affordable care option to be offered by WellSpan. The integrated, regional health system also has a network of walk-in care options available throughout central Pennsylvania – including urgent care, orthopedic urgent care and walk-in hours at many primary care offices.
In addition, patients can schedule appointments online through the convenience of the MyWellSpan patient portal and WellSpan.org or reserve a spot online at a WellSpan walk-in care location before they arrive.
"We think accessing health care should be easy,” explained Kyle Letner, Director of Connected Health, WellSpan. “Online Urgent Care is a great option for treating minor ailments and injuries from the comfort of your home, office or even while on vacation.”
