Need immediate medical care? No problem. The new Beaumont Health Urgent Care Center offers same day care and no appointments are necessary.
Today, Beaumont opens an Urgent Care Center inside the Beaumont Medical Center at 6900 Orchard Lake Road, West Bloomfield. The 2,200-square-foot center offers after-hours and weekend appointments.
“There’s always a Beaumont doctor working on-site,” says Terry Kowalenko, M.D., chair of Emergency Medicine for Beaumont Hospital - Grosse Pointe, Royal Oak and Troy. “It’s staffed by emergency medicine physicians, family practice physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants.”
Treatment and services for adults and children 18 months and older, include basic lab tests; vaccinations; skin treatments; and minor illnesses and injuries, such as: cough, flu, earache, gastrointestinal symptoms, cuts, sprains and broken bones. A complete listing can be found here.
“Our Urgent Care team will work with a person’s primary doctor to make sure all of their information is available, so any follow-up care is as seamless as possible,” says Bernice Sessa, M.D., medical director of the Urgent Care Center.
For those who may not have a primary care physician, the Beaumont Urgent Care Staff will help connect them with a Beaumont doctor.
In addition, for convenience, those who get digital X-rays at the Urgent Care Center will have their records sent electronically to a Beaumont hospital to be reviewed by a certified Beaumont radiologist within one hour or less. If they have a Beaumont doctor, their medical record is automatically updated in Beaumont’s electronic health record.
