DAYTON — Premier Physician Network (PPN) has begun construction on four urgent care sites as part of an overall strategy to bring new access points to Southwest Ohio during 2018.
A Premier Health Urgent Care will open in Englewood, Miamisburg, Springboro and Vandalia by spring 2018. The sites will service patients needing care when their primary care physician is not available and a trip to the emergency department is not necessarily needed. The urgent care sites are the latest way in which PPN’s parent company Premier Health is leading the local industry in providing patients with convenient access to care. Other recent moves include the rollout of E-visits and virtual care appointments with physicians.
“Premier Health Urgent Care introduces a new generation of urgent care with design and technology aimed at giving patients the care they need with the convenience their lifestyle demands,” said Mike Maiberger, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Premier Health. “Everything from the feel of the waiting room to the ability to register online redefines how urgent care has been delivered in the past.”
Patients will be able to register for an appointment time online and wait in the comfort of their own home up until the time of their appointment. Walk-in appointments will also be available through the convenient registration at self-check-in kiosks. Individuals who check-in on-site may leave to run errands while they wait for their time to arrive, and be alerted through mobile devices when their appointment is getting close so they don’t run the risk of losing their spot in line.
The first four urgent cares will be located at 1130 S. Main St. in Englewood, 8 Prestige Plaza in Miamisburg, 752 N. Main St. in Springboro and 6700 Commerce Center Dr. in Vandalia. The locations will operate Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Each Premier Health Urgent Care will be staffed by local, certified advanced practice providers.
