On Oct. 5, CareSpot will open a third urgent care center in southwest Gainesville, located in the new Archer Centro West complex in the 3500 and 3600 blocks of Archer Road, across from Butler Plaza.
The new location will complement CareSpot’s downtown and northwest Gainesville locations.
“The new location makes urgent care more accessible to our community,” said Dana Nemenyi, UF Health Shands Business Development director. “In addition, it provides access to UF Health primary care and specialty physicians for follow-up care.”
UF Health Shands shares an affiliation with CareSpot’s Gainesville locations, all of which will soon feature new signage that includes the UF Health logo. These facilities are held to the same quality standards as all other UF Health practices.
“The CareSpot team knows how to provide accessible and efficient urgent care services to patients. This partnership allows us to work directly with CareSpot to help ensure that patients receive the highest quality of care driven by mutually developed care protocols,” said Marvin Dewar, M.D., J.D., UF Health Physicians chief executive officer and UF College of Medicine senior associate dean. “And when care handoffs are needed — UF Health to CareSpot and vice versa — we will work to make sure the necessary information flows to help clinicians provide the care patients deserve.”
All Gainesville and Ocala CareSpot locations are included in the GatorCare health plan’s Tier 1 Network.
In fall 2016, residents of the southwest Gainesville area will also benefit from expanded critical care services with the addition of the UF Health Shands Emergency Center at Kanapaha, located about 2.5 miles west of I-75 near Tower Road.
