When we opened Kent Island Urgent Care, the goal was to improve access to basic health care needs for our community. We know that patients have improved care coordination when their care is delivered by a primary care provider, which is why we’ve made the decision to change how we deliver care in the AAMC Kent Island Pavilion. As a result, Kent Island Urgent Care will be closing on December 7, 2018.
Having a relationship with a primary care provider is the best way to prevent serious health issues down the road. In order to make our primary care services as accessible as possible for you and ease this transition, we are taking the following steps to offer the convenience you have come to expect:
- Extended office hours in the Kent Island Pavilion for same-day sick appointments. When you’re sick or suddenly don’t feel well, you want to see someone right away. To accommodate this need, we’ll be offering same-day sick appointments during extended hours starting Dec. 11, 2018. This will include additional evening hours Monday-Thursday and Saturday morning. Kent Island Primary Care and Eastern Shore Primary Care are both located in the AAMC Kent Island Pavilion.
- New primary care providers on the Shore. We have a new primary care provider starting in the pavilion on Dec. 12, 2018 and are actively recruiting for additional primary care providers to the Kent Island Pavilion and other locations on the Eastern Shore.
With five primary care offices located in Kent Island, Centreville, Easton and St. Michael’s, we are still able to offer you convenient access to care, close to home. You can call your preferred office to make an appointment and your records from Kent Island Urgent Care will transfer automatically. If you need help finding a provider or location, please call 443-481-5555 or visit askAAMC.org/Findadoc.
In addition, we have plans to renovate the current urgent care space in order to bring a new AAMG Physical Therapy clinic to Kent Island. We anticipate that clinic opening within the next 18-24 months.
We know you have choices in health care providers. It’s our privilege to serve you and we hope you’ll continue to choose Anne Arundel Medical Center services for your health care needs.
