As a member of the Henderson county board, I like to help promote new businesses in the area to give them a head start. That’s why I’m coming online today to let everyone know about Henderson’s newest Urgent Care center! Up until now residents of Henderson have had to drive to a town in either direction to get urgent care for a medical emergency but now help is just a short drive away.
Located conveniently in the shopping center right on the main strip, the urgent care center is easy to access and centrally located. There are plenty of parking spots available and fifteen individual rooms for patients. With one shared room having six beds that gives the urgent care center a maximum capacity of twenty one patients. There are always plenty of nurse and EMT staff available as their aim is to give each patient a new kind of experience at a hospital. At this urgent care clinic you won’t have to wonder where your nurse or doctor is. You will no longer be forced to wait for hours and hours to get called back for care. At the Urgent Care clinic in Henderson they boast wait times that are half that of Henderson General Hospital. There are also several doctors available to ensure that each patient is receiving the best care possible.
I personally took a pre-grand opening tour of the facility and I can tell you that it is truly amazing. All of the equipment is new and top of the line. There are two x-ray rooms and a cat scan machine to help doctors evaluate and diagnose difficult injuries or illnesses. Technicians, nurses and EMTs are standing by ready to help patients in need. The rooms are roomier and more accommodating than the average emergency department room. Each room has it’s own door that closes, television and chairs for guests. In the back of the building there is a “pain management” room where patients of lower risk get treatment. Each of the six beds in this shared room can be separated by a curtain to give each patient privacy. Extendable arms come out from the wall and give each patient a television and telephone at arms reach.
In general I was really impressed with the facility and the vision of Henderson’s newest Urgent care clinic. It is something I think each of us can be proud of and happy to have as part of our community. It’s strange to recommend a place that I hope none of our citizens ever have to go, however illnesses and the unexpected medical emergencies are bound to happen so it is best to be prepared. With the low wait times and highly qualified staff at these clinics, you will always be in the best hands.
My visit to the clinic ended with a short interview with one of the doctors. He explained that the company which started back East, was founded on the principle of putting the patient first. They stick to that philosophy and give wonderful care.
