Bethesda Health Now Offering A Wide Array Of Services In Wellington We’ve all been there. You wake up and feel miserable — sniffles, sore throat and achy all over. These are the times when most people want to go straight back to bed and pull the covers over their heads. But when going back to bed is not an option, Bethesda Health now offers new services in Wellington that can help you feel better fast. For starters, Bethesda Health Urgent Care, located on Forest Hill Blvd. near Barnes & Noble in front of the Mall at Wellington Green, provides convenient medical care 365 days a year, seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. There’s never a need to make an appointment, and walk-ins are always welcome. Bethesda’s medical team sees everyone from babies to seniors. With a longstanding reputation for providing trusted medical care since 1959, Bethesda Health Urgent Care provides care for a comprehensive array of medical conditions, including: allergic reactions, asthma attacks, colds, flu, viruses, sports injuries and urinary tract infections. Laboratory services are also available, and most prescriptions, if necessary, are available at check-out, saving time from having to go to the pharmacy after your visit. Plus, whether it is a broken bone, sore throat or the flu, Bethesda’s on-site
imaging center can make accurate diagnoses with the support of on-site Xrays and CT scans. As part of Bethesda Health Urgent Care, the imaging center will help ensure that the right diagnosis is made. Walk-in patients are welcome with a prescription from their doctor. Bethesda Health Urgent Care can also provide school physicals and immunizations, as well as sports physicals, providing Wellington-area families with convenient care — and most insurance plans are accepted.

The center has an all-female staff comprised of physicians, a breast surgeon and breast health experts who provide comprehensive breast care services, using the most advanced technology. Among those services is screening tomosynthesis 3D mammography, the most advanced technology in breast care. Diagnostic mammography and diagnostic breast ultrasound are also of-
