March 15, 2019
LITTLETON, NH - Littleton Regional Healthcare (LRH) is pleased to announce a new option for medical care in our local community. Littleton Urgent Care will open at LRH this spring and provide a faster and less costly alternative to the emergency department when patients need care right away. The new Urgent Care Center will be open seven days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. with no appointment needed.
Staffed by LRH Emergency Medicine and Family Medicine board certified physicians, as well as with experienced Advanced Practice Providers, Littleton Urgent Care will offer evaluation and treatment for patients ages 3 months of age and up for a wide range of illnesses or injuries, including: fever or sore throat; respiratory infection; simple cuts needing stitches; and muscle sprains and other injuries.
"This is part of our effort to expand our services with the opening of Littleton Urgent Care." stated Littleton Regional Healthcare President Robert Nutter. "Patients and individuals in our community will have a convenient, low-cost option for high-quality, comprehensive care - delivered by caring providers our community already know and trust. When we offer the right care in the right place, at the right time, every time, we will see improvement in the overall health of the community."
Littleton Urgent Care will be conveniently located on the first floor of the LRH Physician's Office Building. Littleton Urgent care is an important part of the hospital's ongoing expansion of convenient, affordable quality health care. Patients will have ready access to medical imaging for x-rays and laboratory services for tests. Patients can also fill their prescriptions at the North Country Pharmacy located on-site.
The new urgent care services will be available at an affordable and competitive price - and will be covered by most health insurance plans. Patients can also feel confident they will receive the highest quality care. Littleton Urgent Care is located close to the hospital's full-service emergency department. A board-certified emergency medicine physician remains on the property at all times to respond to emergencies.
"If a patient arrives at our urgent care center experiencing a heart attack or other emergency, he or she can be transferred quickly and easily to the emergency department," said Koren Superchi, RN, MSN, and Vice President of Patient Care Services. "Test results and records from the visit will be shared with the patient's primary care doctor and made available in the emergency department if the patient needs additional care. We'll even help patients find a primary care doctor if they don't already have one."
"LRH remains committed to serving North Country residents and providing the highest level of personal, patient-focused health care to our communities," said Nutter.
