Doctors Express Brings 2nd Urgent Care Center to Danbury
West Side Center Will Provide Easy Access to Care for CT and NY Residents
Danbury, CT (PRUnderground) October 29th, 2014
In order to better serve the community, Doctors Express Urgent Care will open its second Danbury facility on the west side of town this winter. The first Doctors Express in CT is located at 2 Main Street in Danbury. Soon, residents of Danbury, Bethel, Ridgefield, New Fairfield, Redding, Brookfield and Brewster, New York will have easy access to a second choice of location for the state-of-the art walk-in urgent care center located at 100 Mill Plain Rd, where they will find a combination of exceptional medical care and impeccable customer service.
“As Connecticut’s largest locally owned urgent care center group, Doctors Express is independent and not part of a larger health network or hospital. We guide patients to the best available care and specialists, regardless of their affiliation. We are not feeding a larger system, but rather are 100% pure, “said Tom Kelly, co-owner of Doctors Express Urgent Care. “Our only concern is for our patients. We strive to meet our goal of providing the highest quality, affordable care in under an hour.”
Doors will open with a staff of physicians, physician assistants, APRNs, x-ray technicians, and medical assistants, ready and available to treat everything from virus’s and infections, cuts and fractures to ear, eye, and skin issues. The new walk-in facility will have its own on-site laboratory, pharmacy and x-ray equipment enabling doctors to diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries as well as dispense medication to our patients.
Along with urgent care issues, Doctors Express Danbury also provides physicals and vaccinations for school, sports, immigration, DOT and pre-employment. They also have an efficient Occupational Health program for employers providing care for Workers’ Compensation cases and employee-related testing, such as drug screening and hearing tests. The center will create about 20 new jobs in the west side of Danbury.
“Doctors Express has established itself as a reliable go-to facility able to serve the medical needs facing the residents of Danbury and other neighboring communities,” said Danbury Mayor Mark D. Boughton. “We welcome a second Danbury Doctors Express urgent care location and applaud Doctors Express for choosing our city as a foundation to build this growing genre of medical care.”
“The city of Danbury is extremely business friendly. As in the past, the city works to create an environment where businesses can open and flourish,” said Kelly. “Our newest center is located in a highly commercial corridor which lacks medical care alternatives. Our goal is to bring the nicest, most modern medical facility to the Mill Plain Rd corridor.”
Doctors Express Danbury is also committed to educating the public about current, real-time health issues, reaching out via email blasts, e newsletters, and social media like Twitter, Google Plus and Facebook with community health alerts.
Doctors Express also produces a video series called “The Doctors Express Medical Minute” on their YouTube Channel, a web-based tool for alerts, such as flu warnings or seasonal health issues like spring allergies. Dr. Tom Brown, Medical Director for Doctors Express, addresses common ailments and preventative tactics people can use to self- manage their health issues between doctor appointments, and in some cases to prevent seeing a doctor.
Adds Kelly, “With previously unknown health threats like enterovirus, the spread of Ebola and now a new mystery polio-like illness striking kids, everyone needs to stay informed so that they can protect themselves and their families. We are the front line of information.”
The group also opened a new facility in West Hartford in June.
