WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Your child is sick, injured, or needs medical attention fast. It’s not serious enough to merit a trip to the emergency room, but you can’t wait until tomorrow for a doctor’s appointment. You decide to head to a “walk-in” urgent care.
Urgent care has long been valued for its no-appointment needed convenience. By expanding its services last fall, White Plains Hospital created a new model of excellence for urgent care at Medical and Wellness in Armonk. The result? Advanced care that’s both accessible and comprehensive.
Patients and parents are seen immediately by board-certified physicians in a modern facility with state-of-the-art imaging, comprehensive laboratory testing, and a seamless connection to the Emergency Department that treats more patients than any other hospital in Westchester.
“What people will find in Armonk is urgent care that goes well beyond basic services,” says Frances Bordoni, senior vice president of Ambulatory and Physician Services and Business Development at White Plains Hospital. “Our physicians are able to diagnose and treat a wide variety of conditions. They have access to the hospital’s extensive clinical resources, and they can support patients after an urgent care visit, right here in the community, through referrals to and communication with our extensive physician network.”
“As one of only two hospital-operated urgent care centers in New York State, we are able to provide a higher level of care than most urgent care centers that offer only basic labs or basic x-rays,” says Dr. Farrukh Jafri, co-medical director of Urgent Care. “Here you’ll always be seen by an emergency medicine physician. We also have on-site imaging, and we can analyze blood work and labs in real time.”
White Plains Hospital Medical and Wellness’ urgent care center is open seven days a week for after-hour ailments and injuries, such as the flu, sore throats, and common sprains, which are not necessarily severe enough to require emergency room visits. Hours are 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. on weekends.
