Covenant Health has launched virtual urgent care services to provide patients with access to care from emergency medicine-trained clinicians via telehealth visits. Covenant Health Virtual Care began Sept. 1, 2021, and is available anywhere in East Tennessee 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Covenant Health Virtual Care makes prompt medical care more accessible for patients. Virtual urgent care is available for all ages to treat conditions such as coughs, colds, allergies, stomach problems, rashes, and other urgent care-related symptoms.
Covenant Health Virtual Care is unique because emergency medicine-trained clinicians provide patients’ care. Virtual urgent care visits occur via the patient’s computer or smart phone and generally take less than an hour. The clinician can provide a diagnosis and treatment plan for most non-emergent illnesses and injuries at a cost that is usually less than a medical office visit.
“We are excited to expand our delivery of care by helping meet patients where they are,” said Jim VanderSteeg, president and CEO of Covenant Health. “Covenant Health Virtual Care is a convenient, high-quality option for urgent care after hours or when an office visit is not accessible.”
