Latonia, KY, March 29, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The Midwest’s Fastest Growing Urgent Care Company Opens Its Second KY Location in Latonia
Hometown Urgent Care and WorkCare Center will open a second Northern Kentucky location on Friday March 30. It is located at 4387 Winston Ave., in the Latonia Center in front of Kroger.
Hometown currently has 25 locations throughout Ohio, Michigan and now Kentucky. Hometown just opened its first Kentucky site in Hebron in February.
Hometown is a fully-equipped Urgent Care and Occupational Health Center. It is a full service facility with onsite X-rays, Labs, EKG’s, prescriptions and will offer the most comprehensive urgent care and occupational health services. This includes treatment for minor injuries such as minor fractures, lacerations, sprains, infections and common illnesses.
Hometown also offers comprehensive health services for employers such as work injuries, physicals, DOT/Non-DOT drug and alcohol testing and specialized testing that is industry specific.
Hometown Urgent Care is open 7 days a week, Monday-Friday from 8:30 am to 7:30 pm and Saturday-Sunday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The phone number for the new Latonia center is 859-431-7300.
Hometown’s service model is designed to reduce unnecessary workload on Emergency Rooms, save time and money for its patients, provide value to the community and work with the local medical community to provide healthcare where it belongs.
“We work with local ERs across the Midwest to make our quality healthcare affordable and convenient. While ERs are important for life threatening conditions, ERs are over utilized and overburdened with minor injuries and illnesses which can be taken care of in a full-service facility like Hometown Urgent Care,” stated Brian Barberic, Director of Marketing for Hometown Urgent Care.
Mr. Barberic continued, “The average wait time here at Hometown is less that one quarter the wait time for the ER. The cost can be up to 88% less than the ER, and the co-pay is usually one third of the ER. Compared to the ER, each visit will save, on average, over $1,000 in healthcare costs.”
Hometown Urgent Care has many other programs that are offered to the community. “We are very proud of our Primary Care Communication Program,” Mr. Barberic stated. “It allows your Hometown Urgent Care physician to communicate with your primary care physician for continuity of care. This increased availability of medical services, when the primary care physician is not available after office hours and on weekends, is very valuable to the community.”
