Marlborough – A new UMass Memorial-affiliated CareWell Urgent Care center will open this summer in East Marlborough. The center, at 757 Boston Post Road, will provide area residents with an integrated healthcare solution, serving patients based on their individual needs for non-life-threatening injuries, colds, flu, infections, fractures, cuts, bites, rashes, nose bleeds, allergic reactions and skin issues, among others.
“CareWell, in affiliation with UMass Memorial Health Care, is excited to open our fourth center together,” said CEO Shaun Ginter. “We recognize that this type of health care service is vital to communities like Marlborough. Together we are giving more people in central and Metrowest Massachusetts access to quality care at an affordable price conveniently located in their own community.”
UMass Memorial Health Care can now refer appropriate patients to nearby CareWell centers, reducing wait times and costs for non-urgent illnesses and injuries. CareWell clinics are located in close proximity to UMass Memorial Health Care hospitals, ensuring these referrals can be made quickly and conveniently. The Marlborough center will be located within 3.2 miles of UMass Memorial-Marlborough Hospital.
“We are very pleased to bring urgent care services to Marlborough and further extend our relationship with CareWell Urgent Care,” said Eric Dickson, MD, president and CEO of UMass Memorial Health Care. “The response to our first three urgent care centers shows that patients want quality, convenient care. I believe this will be an important and welcomed new medical alternative for the residents of Marlborough.”
CareWell Urgent Care centers accept most insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid and the copay and visit fees are comparable to an office visit with your primary care doctor. If you do not have insurance, CareWell also offers affordable self-pay rates. CareWell centers are open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Patients can also make appointments online.
