SmartMED, your drive-thru medical clinic is coming soon!
Over the past year, the medical team at PriorityMed Express GA tested more than 20,000 people for Covid. With the community’s support we were able to help curb the spread of Covid by identifying positive cases quickly. That was important work, but we felt that we could do more.
What if we opened a medical clinic where patients could remain in the car to receive a full medical evaluation, be tested for common illnesses on-site such as flu, RSV, mono, strep, conjunctivitis, etc. and leave with treatment? Could offering medical care in this setting make it more convenient and comfortable for patients?
It seemed like a simple solution to a complex challenge that so many faced. For people with compromised immune systems, it could be safer. For those with decreased mobility, it could be easier. And for those with young children or highly sensitive children who get incredibly anxious in traditional doctors’ offices, it could be invaluable. So we asked ourselves, “Why not expand our offerings to include non-urgent medical care?” With over 30 years of combined emergency medical experience in local hospitals, we knew that our team had the expertise to deliver high quality medical care in this setting. And from there, the idea of SmartMED was born!
With the official opening of SmartMED on October 3rd, we will become the first drive-through medical clinic providing patients with quick, convenient, and compassionate care in the comfort of their own cars. Whether it’s a strep or flu test that’s needed, possible pink eye or an aching ear, we’re here to see you, answer questions, provide a diagnosis and treatment, and get you back on the road to home – and feeling better – just as fast as we can.
Our services have multiplied since the day we first raised our tent in 2021, but our motivation remains the same: we love our community and the people within it. We’re honored to be here and gratified to help.
