  •  Physicians Urgent Care Opens Oct. 18th at Griffiss

    On Wednesday, Oct. 18th convenient walk-in urgent care services will be available in Rome for patients ages 2 and older, announced Rome Memorial Hospital President/Chief Executive Officer David Lundquist and Slocum Dickson Medical Group President Maria Gesualdo, D.O.
    Physicians Urgent Care at Griffiss will open in the Mohawk Glen medical building in Suite 120 located in the rear of the building. Open to the public, Physicians Urgent Care will participate with most major insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid.
    “Restoring urgent care services to meet the community’s needs has been one of our top priorities,” Lundquist said. “We are excited to be working with Slocum Dickson Medical Group, who will be staffing the new urgent care with a physician onsite working in collaboration with nurse practitioners and physician assistants to provide expert, personal medical care for minor illnesses and injuries.”
    “We are very excited to be part of this new Urgent Care. This is a wonderful example of how two organizations can join forces to help meet the needs of our community utilizing high quality standards,” said Dr. Gesualdo.
    “Slocum Dickson has extensive experience providing quality urgent care services for the treatment of minor problems such as sprains, broken bones, cuts, common illnesses and job-related injuries,” Lundquist said.
    When a patient can’t wait for an appointment with their own provider, Physicians Urgent Care will provide the community with an alternative for those minor problems that don’t need to be seen in an Emergency Department.
    “Initially, the urgent care will be open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, but we will expand our hours to meet the community’s evening and weekend needs,” Lundquist explained. “Because of the critical need, we felt it was important to open the office as soon as possible and expand hours into the evening and weekends as we become fully operational.”
