A new Floyd Urgent Care and Corporate Health facility will open Wednesday, July 5. The 8,600-square-foot facility, located at 302 Shorter Ave., will include a larger Urgent Care practice as well as a customized center for Corporate Health patients.
Urgent Care patient rooms will double to 14 from seven, and will feature a central nurses’ station with digital patient-tracking monitors, giving nurses quick access to every patient room.
“There are more patient rooms, which means we will be able to serve more patients quickly and efficiently,” Kurt Stuenkel, Floyd President and CEO, said during a tour of the facilities. “These rooms are along the perimeter of our nurse’s station, which means nurses will have the ability to keep their eyes on the rooms of every patient and quickly come to them if they have a need.”
Also available are two procedure rooms, on-site digital imaging and on-site dispensing for commonly prescribed medications.
Urgent Care will continue to be staffed by Dr. Robert Holcombe, Medical Director of Floyd Urgent Care, Dr. Duriel Gray and Dr. Kristine Mull. Dr. Holcombe has provided care at Floyd Urgent Care for more than 20 years.
Opposite of Urgent Care will be the new Corporate Health Center to serve employees and families of employers who partner with Floyd Corporate Health for services. Available services will include drug, vision and hearing screenings, immunizations, workers’ compensation injuries and general medical care.
Corporate Health patients will be directed to a dedicated employee lounge that is separate from Urgent Care. The customized suite is designed for the efficient delivery of Corporate Health services.
“All patients, including our Corporate Health clients, will experience an updated facility that is designed with efficiency in mind,” said Chris Butler, Floyd Corporate Health Director. “The Corporate Health lounge provides separate seating and accommodations for work-related visits and our corporate health partners.”
The previous Urgent Care facility, located at 304 Shorter Ave., will be renovated to accommodate the Floyd Center for Wound Care and Hyperbarics, which will relocate from the first floor of Floyd Medical Center after renovations. Construction is expected to be complete by the end of 2017.
“This newly renovated facility will offer better parking, improved access, greater capacity and an overall improved patient experience for our outpatient wound care patients,” said Michael Howell, Assistant Administrator for Floyd Primary Care.
