ANNAPOLIS (Aug. 23, 2018)—Maryland-based urgent care company Righttime Medical Care announced the opening of its newest care center at 500 Charles Street in La Plata.
The location marks Righttime's 17th location in Maryland, and the second in Charles County, which also includes a location in Waldorf. Since October 2015, the location has been known as Charles Regional Urgent Care under the ownership of the University of Maryland (UM) Charles Regional Medical Center. Righttime transitioned to independently owning and operating the care center on August 22.
"Partnering with the exceptional team at Charles Regional Medical Center during this change in ownership has been incredibly positive and rewarding, and we look forward to continuing to support one another to bring the best medical care to Charles County residents," said Righttime Chief Executive Officer Robert G. Graw, Jr., M.D. "As the name transitions to Righttime, we're excited to continue the same level of friendly, high-quality urgent care that the community has come to count on."
"We have been fortunate to be able to give Charles County an urgent care option in downtown La Plata. Our center has met a growing demand for these services, serving more than 36,000 patients since opening in 2015," said UM Charles Regional Medical Center President and Chief Executive Officer Noel A. Cervino. "Righttime has established an excellent reputation for urgent care services in northern Charles County, and across the state. We are confident they will deliver the same high standard of care in La Plata. Under their management, the center will continue to take care of most urgent conditions and concussions, and allow the hospital's Emergency Department to focus on patients with more serious illnesses and injuries. The Righttime team has done an outstanding job working with us to ensure a smooth transition."
The Righttime Care Center in La Plata will offer urgent care for illnesses and injuries to patients of all ages, newborns to seniors, 365 days a year. The La Plata team will welcome walk-in patients and also accept convenient same-day appointments online at myRighttime.com or by calling 888-808-6483. Like its other Care Centers, Righttime La Plata will offer on-site x-rays and laboratory testing, coordinate with patients' primary care providers and specialists, and utilize a secure electronic medical record with a convenient patient portal.
The new addition is part of Righttime Medical Care's expansion in Maryland, highlighted by the opening of its Potomac, Md., location in July and upcoming location in downtown Bethesda, slated to open in fall 2018.
