Houston, Texas (PRWEB) August 24, 2016
Houston Methodist Primary Care Group recently announced it plans to collaborate with Next Level Urgent Care for the provision of after-hours care for its patients. In an effort to allow patients greater access to care at night and on the weekends without over-utilizing the emergency departments, organizations such as Kelsey-Seybold, Oak Bend Medical Center and Community Health Choice also recommend Next Level Urgent Care to their patients when primary care physician offices are closed.
“We are working with Next Level Urgent Care to be sure our patients always have access to care when they need it,” said Stephen Spielman, president of Houston Methodist Primary Care Group. “This partnership offers an important alternative to the emergency room for non-life threatening issues.”
With hours extending to 9pm seven days per week, Next Level Urgent Care can treat a variety of conditions, including fever, allergies, wounds needing stitches, broken bones, and sports or work injuries. Next Level can also provide sports and work physical examinations and can identify and refer chronic illnesses to primary care physicians to be managed on an on-going basis.
“We are honored to be the trusted medical facility for after-hours care by such high quality healthcare organizations,” stated Juliet Breeze, MD, CEO of Next Level Urgent Care.
