Tower Health announced today that it will open a new urgent care location in North Wales on Monday, February 15. Tower Health Urgent Care – North Wales is located at 1210 Bethlehem Pike in the Gwynedd Crossing Shopping Center.
All Tower Health Urgent Care (THUC) facilities are open 365 days a year from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. to provide walk-in care for a variety of conditions including: colds, flu, allergies, asthma, sore throat, sports injuries, minor lacerations, sprains, earaches, and preventative services such as physicals, vaccines, and occupational health. Flu vaccines and COVID-19 testing are also available at all THUC locations; rapid COVID-19 testing is available for those individuals experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
Tower Health is committed to providing care when and where our communities need it. Urgent Care is an essential link in the continuum of care that connects patients to a physician if they do not have a primary care physician or their physician is not available.
The facility will be staffed by board-certified Physicians and Advanced Practice Providers. To provide fully integrated care, all Tower Health Urgent Care Centers use EPIC, the electronic medical record in use across Tower Health. EPIC brings patient health information from Tower Health care sites into one health record, leading to more informed clinical decisions, improved outcomes, and seamlessly coordinated care.
“We are excited to bring another Tower Health Urgent Care facility to the Montgomery County community,” said Charles Barbera, MD, Tower Health Vice President, Pre-Hospital and Unscheduled Care. “Our goal is to provide high-quality, accessible care to our patients right in their own community and this new location is opportunity to do just that.”
