GASTONIA, N.C., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CaroMont Health opened its first CLiC Immediate Care facility in Mountain Island Lake, NC. The acronym CLiC stands for convenient, local, individualized care. The practice will provide patient care 12 hours a day (8:30am-8:30pm), seven days a week, without the need for an appointment.
CLiC will stand apart from traditional 'urgent care' facilities by focusing on helping people get well and then giving them tools to become proactive with their health and wellness. Patients will be provided with immediate attention to their acute health care needs, as well as information, resources and support that will improve their long term health and well-being.
The practice will reflect a customer and wellness-centered approach to health care by meeting the needs of busy consumers and introducing them to the concept of health management through a range of innovative features. CLiC will provide user-friendly, interactive opportunities that will connect patients to resources across a continuum of care including stress management, fitness and nutrition.
"At CLiC, we will not only treat each patient's immediate needs, but also use their visit as an opportunity to build a relationship," said CaroMont Health's CEO, Valinda Rutledge. "Our vision is to promote individual health and vibrant communities, touching the lives of every person we serve, and CLiC is just one more way we make our vision a reality."
