The first CareNow clinic in Northern Virginia will open in Sterling on April 4. The clinic, CareNow Urgent Care-Sterling at Cascades, will be part of a network of clinics in Northern Virginia and in several other U.S. markets.
CareNow clinics are walk-ins, but they provide web check-in at CareNow.com, an online preregistration process that triggers a call from CareNow staff to tell the patient when the provider will be ready to see them. Knowing when they should come in, and having pre-registered, the patient can wait anywhere and arrive just before the estimated time. This practically eliminates wait time in the clinic waiting room.
“Our goal is to continuously provide our patients with high quality care every step of the way; and, partnering with CareNow gives our patients access to that level of care throughout Northern Virginia,” stated John Deardorff, president and CEO of Reston Hospital Center and HCA’s Northern Virginia Market.
The CareNow clinics are set to serve the community as additional access points for acute care, bridging the gap between a visit to the doctor and a visit to your local HCA Emergency Room. Partnering with HCA facilities in Northern Virginia such as Reston Hospital Center and StoneSprings Hospital Center allows patients to access convenient care quickly within a trusted network.
