Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care Announces Partnership with Brown & Toland Physicians
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (September 4, 2018) – GoHealth Urgent Care, one of the country’s largest and fastest growing urgent care companies, with its Bay Area health system partner, Dignity Health, today announced a new, integrated partnership with Brown & Toland Physicians, a leading network of independent physicians in the San Francisco Bay Area.
This partnership provides Brown & Toland’s 335,000 patients greater access to high-quality, convenient care at all 10 Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care locations in the Bay Area throughout San Francisco and San Mateo counties. The partnership will provide a more effortless and connected urgent care experience for Brown & Toland patients, physicians and other caregivers.
“Through our partnership with Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, our patients have more choice when it comes to accessing healthcare treatment options,” said Kelly Robison, CEO of Brown & Toland Physicians. “By combining the strengths of our physician network with Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care, we are ensuring that our patients have access to high quality and convenient urgent care services in the San Francisco Bay Area, every day.”
As of September 1st, patients from Brown & Toland Physicians will have immediate access to customer-focused care for both after-hours or everyday illnesses and non-life-threatening injuries in the event that they cannot see their primary care physician urgently. Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care will also provide Brown & Toland Physicians’ patients a much more affordable and convenient alternative to expensive emergency room visits for their non-life threatening healthcare needs. All Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care locations, which are open seven days a week, including weekends and holidays, will provide a seamless continuum of care, including same-day and next-day access to specialists.
“Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care centers provide the right level of care in the right setting, in a convenient location,” said Todd Strumwasser, MD, senior vice president of operations for Dignity Health in the Bay Area. “Access to high-quality urgent care is very important, and we are pleased to welcome Brown & Toland patients.”
“We are very excited about working more closely with Brown & Toland Physicians to help care for their Bay Area patients and to support their physicians and clinical teams,” said Chuck Kruger, president of Dignity Health-GoHealth Urgent Care. “Our new partnership will allow our growing organizations to create a more integrated approach to care within the communities we both serve, focused on population health management and clinical innovation.”
