POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- For bumps, bruises, seasonal aches and pains, there’s a new, convenient care in town. HRHCare, a primary and urgent care health center with locations in Nyack, Peekskill and Poughkeepsie offers family-like care at an affordable price.
Offering both primary and urgent care, HRHCare offers treatment that ranges from small cuts and scrapes to more serious injuries. “You can visit HRHCare for a wide range of treatment options," said Dr. Douglas Hudson, an urgent care physician at HRHCare. "Usually you have to find specific doctors for specific care options. But we have the ability to treat everything from a common cold to a broken arm," he said.
HRHCare has deep Hudson Valley roots. Originally founded by four Peekskill women dubbed the “Founding Mothers,” the company now operates 28 locations in Hudson Valley and Long Island, with Nyack serving as the network's first urgent care facility.
Since opening, Hudson says HRHCare has treated everything from sprains, strains and allergic reactions to rashes, abdominal pains and concussions. HRHCare can perform XRAY/radiology exams, tests for strep throat and urinary tract infections and run sugar and blood tests for diabetics.
While most urgent cares strive to offer efficient admission, the team at HRHCare prides itself on seeing most patients within 15 minutes of their arrival. “Waiting at the doctor's office is stressful and may even discourage someone from visiting the office," said Hudson. "I know the feeling of waiting in a lobby so we want to have you in and out as quickly and efficiently as possible."
In addition to serving adults and children of all ages, HRHCare has helped people who have just moved to the area or who haven’t been able to set up their primary care doctors yet. HRHCare also has a friendly staff and accepts all types of insurance. "We want to offer great service but we also want to make patients feel as comfortable as possible when they come to see us," said Hudson.
HRHCare in Poughkeepsie is open seven days a week, 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit their website.
