HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider, announced today that on Dec. 1, 2016, its seven CareSpot urgent care centers will become CareNow Urgent Care. The centers provide a wide range of medical services with the convenience of extended hours, walk-in appointments, and Web Check-In® to reduce waiting in the center lobby.
“The CareNow brand represents our one-stop approach to service, value and convenience in providing urgent care services across Kansas City,” says HCA Midwest Health President M.L. Lagarde III. “Patients will find the same exceptional service for their urgent medical needs that they have trusted us to provide in their community for a few years.”
HCA Midwest Health currently has seven urgent care locations across the Kansas City market, including Blue Springs, Lee’s Summit, Raytown and Kansas City in Missouri, as well as in Leawood and Overland Park, Kansas.
Urgent care centers provide healthcare services to treat non-emergent medical problems that can develop unexpectedly and require immediate attention, complementing services provided by primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms. Having urgent care services as part of HCA Midwest Health provides a seamless continuum of care for patients and physicians in the communities served.
Patients needing a higher level of care may be immediately connected to the broader resources of HCA Midwest Health if needed.
Locations are open seven days a week from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. Patients may take advantage of Web Check-In® at CareNow.com, an innovative and convenient service that reduces waiting in the clinic lobby. Additional conveniences include on-site lab and X-rays.
HCA Midwest Health and CareSpot previously operated the centers through a joint venture formed in 2013. Earlier this year, HCA and HCA Midwest Health announced that they fully acquired the eight urgent care locations in Kansas City. The transition to CareNow aligns the Kansas City urgent care services with other HCA urgent care services across the country.
