Immediate Care Now Serving Veterans with Urgent Care Needs
Atlanta, Georgia/ July 8th, 2019 – Peachtree Immediate Care, the largest urgent care operator in the greater Atlanta area with 29 centers and the exclusive urgent care partner of the Emory Healthcare Network, is now providing care to veterans at all twenty-nine of its Peachtree Immediate Care locations. The company has received approval from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to start serving veterans beginning immediately.
The recent implementation of the VA Mission Act has allowed Peachtree Immediate Care to become one of the few urgent care clinics allowed by the VA to treat veterans. “We’re excited that the Act has gone into effect” says Bill Miller, a US Navy veteran himself and the CEO of CRH Healthcare, the parent company of Peachtree Immediate Care. “There are over 350,000 veterans in the greater Atlanta area, and we’re proud to have the ability to provide them with the care they need on a walk-in basis, close to home in their communities.”
Based on provisions of the law, most veterans are now eligible to seek treatment at Peachtree Immediate Care’s urgent care facilities for injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening. Examples include: flu-like symptoms, strep throat, minor burns, pink eye, ear/skin infections, diagnostic x-rays, diagnostic lab testing, urgent medications and more.
“Veterans will appreciate our clinics due to their extended hours, the ability to check-in online and our commitment to patient satisfaction,” Miller said. Peachtree Immediate Care’s locations are open seven days a week from 8am to 8pm. Their centers are staffed by licensed physicians and nurse practitioners, offer online-check-in, an on-site lab, and digital x-ray capabilities, allowing patients to be seen without the long wait or high costs of an emergency room.
