Providing Much Needed Medical Care Relief to Local Community
MASSILLON, OHIO: August 10, 2018 – Hometown Urgent Care and Occupational Health, Ohio’s largest urgent care system, has announced the expansion of a brand new, state-of-the-art center in Massillon, Ohio. Construction expected to be completed by December 2018.
Hometown Urgent Care will invest over $600,000 on the project to deliver its contemporary style ambiance with leading edge equipment and treatment rooms (including digital X-ray and EKG), in addition to creating an atmosphere that keeps patients comfortable and coming back at an affordable cost for services. The expansion will also bring 8-10 new jobs to the community.
The expansion allows Hometown to meet the growing needs for high quality, on-demand, affordablehealthcare for the Massillon community and local employers. A much needed relief since the closing of Affinity Medical Center in February 2018, a 156-bed hospital located in Massillon, Ohio.
“A large number of emergency room visits are for non-life threatening conditions and can be treated at a fully equipped medical center like Hometown. With 8% growth in patient deductibles year over year, Hometown can provide significant savings to the Massillon community besides the convenience of less than 45 minutes of total visit time,” said Chris Hale, Senior VP of Hometown Urgent Care.
Services will include walk-in urgent care, wellness, occupational health, and an exclusive Workers’ Compensation injury management program that will provide as a one stop healthcare resource for families and employers. Hometown will also partner with the local community and schools to provide seasonal care promotions such as flu shot clinics and student sport physicals.
“Hometown stands apart from its competitors because of our dedicated focus on clinical staff excellence and training, our modern state-of-the-art facilities, and assuring that our patients receive the best quality and compassionate care possible,” said Kumar. “It is an honor to bring our services to Massillon, assuring the local residents and businesses affordable care for all minor injuries and illnesses.”
Hometown is known for its fast growth, and the Massillon expansion will mark as the company’s 30thand counting fully equipped medical clinic, a considerable landmark from the original three-locations based company in Dayton, Ohio. Today, Hometown Urgent Care is Ohio’s largest urgent care system, and one of the Midwest’s largest providers having expanded operations into Michigan.
“We plan to continue our growth efforts while providing our patients with modernized healthcare convenience,” said Kumar. “We strive not only by exceeding the demand for high-quality, low-cost urgent care, but also expanding our strategic partnerships within the medical community.”
