Emergency Physician’s Immediate Care has changed its name to BetterMed Urgent Care.
With our new practice name new name comes the opening of second location in Prince George, with additional locations planned. The new facility at 4600 Puddledock Road in Prince George opened on January 2, 2014, providing walk-in urgent care for children and adults by Board-Certified Emergency Physicians. The new name more aptly represents the growing company, said Dr. Mark Rausch, CEO and Medical Director of BetterMed Urgent Care.
“Our new name was inspired by patient surveys and reviews in which patients describe the practice as simply the best urgent care they have experienced,” Dr. Rausch said. “From the quality of care provided by our knowledgeable emergency physicians, to our refined processes, to the speed in which we provide care, the BetterMed name is simply a better fit.”
Dr. Rausch said the organization is known for its patient-focused processes that allow patients to reduce the amount of time spent waiting for care, and maximize the time spent with a physician. Care time is typically 45-minutes or less from sign-in to discharge—significantly lower than a hospital emergency room visit and other urgent care facility averages.
BetterMed has 42 staff members in both locations and plans to add staff in the next 24 months as the company secures additional sites for care. BetterMed opened its original location off Hull Street asEmergency Physician’s Immediate Care in November 2012.
