Morton Plant Mease Opens New Immediate Care Center to Serve Central Pinellas County|
Bardmoor Immediate Care Center Relocated
LARGO, Fla., (March 31, 2008) - Continuing its mission of providing central Pinellas County with access to convenient, quality medical services, Morton Plant Mease Health Care announces the opening of the Walsingham Immediate Care Center. The new immediate care center is located in the West Side Shopping Center at 13670 Walsingham Road in Largo. It provides urgent medical care for conditions such as sprains, strains, flu and ear infections. The center is a relocation of the Bardmoor Immediate Care Center on Bryan Dairy Road, Largo.
“It’s important that we continue to meet the health care needs of central Pinellas County. Walsingham Immediate Care Center provides the same level of care offered at the Bardmoor location and still within the Largo community,” said Stephen Jacobs, M.D., F.A.C.P., president and CEO of Morton Plant Mease Primary Care, Inc.
Walsingham Immediate Care Center opened to the public on March 25 and has office hours seven days a week. The center offers on-site laboratory and radiology testing, and includes six patient exam rooms and two procedure rooms. “We understand that urgent medical treatment can’t wait and in the evenings and on weekends, it’s not always possible to see your family physician or appropriate to go to an emergency room. Providing immediate care services is an integral part of ensuring the good health of the community,” added Jacobs.
Walsingham is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., Monday through Saturday and from noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
It is staffed by board-certified physicians. Appointments are not necessary and most major insurance plans are accepted. For more information, please contact the Walsingham Immediate Care Center at (727) 593-9848.
Patients in mid-Pinellas County requiring emergency medical care could use the newly constructed Bardmoor Emergency Center located on the first floor of the Bardmoor Medical Arts Building at 8839 Bryan Dairy Road in Largo. The center opened to the community in March and is the Tampa Bay area’s first freestanding emergency room (ER). Freestanding ERs are those that are separate and not attached to an inpatient hospital structure.
