Takoma Regional Hospital will welcome Greeneville Urgent Care and IndustriCare to the hospital campus this week, making care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses more convenient for patients – and the treatment and management of workplace injuries more efficient than ever for area employers.
A service of Takoma Regional, Greeneville Urgent Care and IndustriCare will open its new location Tuesday at 1021 Coolidge Street in Suite 4, in the original Takoma Medical Office Building. That location also houses the Women’s Center of Greeneville, Chrysalis Weight Management and the Laser and Skincare Center of Greeneville.
Patti Roberts, director of Greeneville Urgent Care and IndustriCare, said the move from a location on Andrew Johnson Highway to the hospital campus allows the clinic to not only deliver the same level of superior service, but also offer patients easier access to more advanced healthcare services at Takoma Regional if needed.
“This is a beneficial move for us, for patients and for the hospital,” Roberts said. “We’re moving into a larger, more updated facility that will be more accessible to the hospital and its services.”
Dr. Bruce Berry, medical director of the clinic, said patients who have come to depend on the facility to provide superior, convenient care for the entire family can expect even more with the move.
“We will still feature the same friendly staff that patients have come to know and love, and the same compassionate service that patients expect from Takoma Regional,” Dr. Berry said. “That is the reputation we have earned. Our new location will only help us to grow and serve our community even better.”
Dr. Berry, who joined the clinic last year as the full-time medical director, has 12 years of experience in treating work-place injuries and 20 years of experience in emergency medicine.
In addition to Dr. Berry, Dr. Donald Aspley and Marsha Montemarano, a family nurse practitioner, will bring their expertise to the facility.
IndustriCare is an occupational medicine clinic that partners with employers to manage employee health issues. IndustriCare’s goal is to help employers and their employees maintain a healthy and productive work force.
IndustriCare also serves as advocates for employees in helping them negotiate through the ins and outs of workers’ compensation and other work-related health issues. IndustriCare is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Greeneville Urgent Care is open seven days a week and offers expert treatment of non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries that families deal with on an everyday basis. Staffed by experienced physicians, X-ray technicians, nurses and medical assistants, Greeneville Urgent Care offers a cost-effective and convenient alternative to a hospital emergency room for those injuries and medical conditions that do not require emergency department care.
The urgent care clinic is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m.
“We are proud of our urgent care and occupational clinic which has developed strong relationships with patients and employers,” said Carlyle Walton, president and chief executive officer of Takoma Regional. “Their relocation to our campus will benefit the community for years to come.”
