AfterOurs Urgent Care and Front Range Primary Care
Host Grand Opening Event
Public Encouraged to Attend
Denver, Colorado (January 18, 2010) –This Thursday, January 21st, AfterOurs Urgent Care and Front Range Primary Care will co-host a grand opening celebration at their Westminster location, starting at 4:30PM. Food and beverages will be provided as well as free massages from Superior Laser and Aesthetics.
AfterOurs Urgent Care is also partnering with Front Range Primary care for the second time to introduce a joint clinic at 6895 East Hampden Avenue, in Southeast Denver. The clinic will be Front Range Primary Care’s second Colorado clinic and AfterOurs’ fifth. Opening in late February, Front Range Primary Care will operate Monday through Friday, from 8 am until 5 pm, while AfterOurs Urgent Care will open in April and operate from 5 pm until 9 pm, during the week, and from 8 am to 4 pm on weekends and holidays. Both Front Range Primary Care and AfterOurs will staff board certified physicians, and offer lab and x-ray services.
AfterOurs’ uncommon operating model has given them a unique advantage in the urgent care arena; the highly desired physician referral. Very often physicians are reluctant to refer their patients to urgent care centers, rather than the emergency room, out of concern that an urgent care provider may perpetuate a relationship with their patient by inappropriately providing primary care services. Unlike many of their counterparts, AfterOurs doesn’t offer services that patients are better off receiving from a long term health care provider, who typically has a longer and more robust health history for the patient. Physicians also appreciate AfterOurs’ complimentary hours of service and patient referral policies. AfterOurs operates nights, weekends, and holidays, when most physician offices are closed, and in Colorado alone, refers over 1,000 patients to PCPs each month, for follow-up and primary care services.
-Urgent Care Continued-
“We are certainly different, and though our patient base is reduced by our hours of service and our primary care referral policies, we really believe that the PCP office should be every patient’s first choice for non-emergency care”, said Christopher Rehm, Executive Director of AfterOurs. “We’re an emergency room alternative, not a drop in PCP.”
AfterOurs manages a referral list of over 50 PCPs in the Denver Metro Area, many of whom accept walk-in or same day appointments. For a referral to a primary care provider in your area, or for urgent care services, contact AfterOurs at (303) 861-7878.
