Remote Care When It Counts

hen the COVID-19 virus came to our area, the demand for Henry Mayo Newhall Urgent Care services spiked as patients sought assessments and medical advice related to the outbreak, in addition to having their more routine health concerns addressed.

“One of the advantages we have as an independent urgent care practice is that we don’t have bureaucratic hoops to jump through when we need to develop new services to serve our patients,” said Bud Lawrence, MD, Medical Director for Henry Mayo Newhall Urgent Care. “In healthcare it’s practically unheard of to develop and launch a new service in 72 hours.”
