GASTONIA, N.C., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, CaroMont Health opened its first CLiC Immediate Care facility in Mountain Island Lake, NC.

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."

CLiC will also have a retail component that is intended to be a tool for community members who need equipment, support, education and health products that they may not easily find in other retail stores. The CLiC store will be open to the public Monday through Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm.

For added convenience, CLiC will offer platforms through e-enabled connectivity. "We want health to be at the top of a person's mind even when they are out of the facility. 24/7 care is only a 'CLiC' away," Rutledge said.
