TEAYS VALLEY, WV – Valley Health Teays Pediatrics’ QuickCare service will soon permanently extend its weekend walk-in hours. Starting April 1, the QuickCare location will be open on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. QuickCare is a valuable urgent care resource for Valley Health patients and new patients experiencing minor injuries and illnesses.
Valley Health Teays Pediatrics’ QuickCare offers same-day sick appointments during business hours Monday through Friday and seasonally on Saturdays between November and March for cold and flu season. Through the end of March, Teays Pediatrics’ QuickCare will continue observing its Saturday 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. walk-in schedule.
At Valley Health’s QuickCare locations, patients can seek out medical care for various non-life- and non-limb-threatening conditions and injuries, including: Sprains, sore throats and ear infections, urinary tract infections, mild asthma, rash without fever, minor burns, minor cuts that require stitches, insect bites, nausea and dizziness, and sports physicals. This service also extends to patients who are unable to get a same-day appointment with their primary care providers.
As a service designed for patients on the go, QuickCare can save patients time, treat their ailment or illness in a prompt manner so they can return to school, and, when appropriate, prevent an unnecessary trip to the emergency room. Valley Health’s advanced QuickCare telehealth services can also save patients a trip to the health center.
The Teays Pediatrics’ QuickCare will be staffed by pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, and physician assistants from across the Valley Health system. Teays Pediatrics will be the ninth Valley Health site to offer QuickCare services, in addition to East Huntington, FoodFair, Huntington, Fort Gay, Milton, Oakwood Road, Teays Valley, and Wayne locations.
Between extracurriculars and seasonal bugs, pediatric illness and injuries can occur at any time, often after-hours and on weekends. Teays Pediatrics’ QuickCare will make weekend health care more accessible, convenient, and inclusive for pediatric patients seeking non-life-threatening medical attention.
QuickCare visit notes and information for existing Valley Health patients will be immediately available to their primary care providers through Valley Health’s integrated patient portal, Epic. Patients who are registered for a MyChart account may also review their appointment notes and more using the Valley Health MyChart mobile applications, available for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store, or our MyChart website: https://mychart.valleyhealth.org/.
