Beaver, PA (March 5, 2009)
– Heritage Valley Health System is proud to announce the opening of its new Heritage Valley Convenient Care Center - Beaver. This facility has been developed to increase the options for the care of minor illnesses and injuries for area residents. The center is owned and operated by Heritage Valley Medical Group (a subsidiary of Heritage Valley Health System) and is staffed by certified registered nurse practitioners and physician assistants supervised by physicians. It is not a substitute for care by your primary care physician, but rather another integrated alternative for care of minor illnesses and injuries.
Dr. Jay Zdunek, chairman of Heritage Valley Medical Group and family practice physician, said that “this distinctive model leverages Heritage Valley’s strong electronic health record, electronic prescription program, and automatic medical record delivery to associated physicians within the system.” He added “the combination of these factors provides an unprecedented continuity of care for patients choosing this convenient, efficient, cost-effective site for the management of minor illness and injury.”
The facility is open to all patients and will accept most medical insurances. For most insurers, the “specialist” copay will apply and be collected at the time of service. Care for uninsured individuals will be offered at posted rates.
The site is located at 274 Third Street, Beaver, Pennsylvania and is open from 11:00am to 9:00pm Monday through Saturday, and 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, please visit www.heritagevalley.org or call 1-877-771-HVHS (4847).
