“We work with local ERs across the Midwest to make our quality healthcare affordable and convenient. While ERs are important for life threatening conditions, ERs are over utilized and overburdened with minor injuries and illnesses which can be taken care of in a full-service facility like Hometown Urgent Care,” stated Brian Barberic, Director of Marketing for Hometown Urgent Care.
“The average wait time here at Hometown is less that one quarter the wait time for the ER. The cost can be up to 88% less than the ER, and the co-pay is usually one third of the ER. Compared to the ER, each visit will save, on average, over $1,000 in healthcare costs.”
Hometown Urgent Care has many other programs that are offered to the community. “
We are very proud of our Primary Care Communication Program,” Barberic said. “It allows your Hometown Urgent Care physician to communicate with your primary care physician for continuity of care. This increased availability of medical services, when the primary care physician is not available after office hours and on weekends, is very valuable to the community.”
