New location to open on Haywood Road on August 19
Bon Secours St. Francis Health System plans to expand its AFC Urgent Care Bon Secours sites to include a new location at 649-A Haywood Road in Greenville on Wednesday, August 19, 2020. This center will join seven existing Greenville County centers located as follows: Pleasantburg Road in Cherrydale, Grandview Drive in Simpsonville, West Wade Hampton Boulevard in Greer, Wade Hampton Boulevard in the Taylors area, and Woodruff Road, Pelham Road and Augusta Road in Greenville.
The center will care for patients from age two and up, providing urgent care, employer health services, and basic wellness services. Urgent care treatment is available for everyday illness and injury, including treatment for everything from allergic reactions to fall and winter ailments such as colds, flu and upper respiratory infections – as well as more advanced services including X-Rays, Lab testing, stitches and treatment for broken bones, sprains and strains
“Convenient access to care is paramount for today’s population, and that’s exactly what Bon Secours is looking to do with this new facility on Haywood Road,” said Ann Allen, Chief Operating Officer of the Bon Secours Medical Group. “Bringing an urgent care location to this area will enable Bon Secours and AFC to offer patients enhanced access to care and improved quality of care, at a reduced cost.”
The model of care in the new 3,166 square foot facility will be focused on the patient. The center features five patient rooms including a procedure room as well as on-site X-Ray. Not only does this center allow patients to walk in at their convenience to receive care, but patients can also use our online portal to save a place in line prior to arrival.
Local employers can use AFC Urgent Care Bon Secours – Haywood Road for employer health services that include workers’ compensation, injury care, pre- and ongoing employment screenings, DOT physicals and regulatory exams. Sports physicals and immunizations are also provided.
The center will be open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm, with no appointment needed. Saturday and Sunday hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
“Our centers are open on all major holidays in order to provide our community with access to compassionate, quality healthcare,” noted Allen.
As a part of Bon Secours, which is part of Bon Secours Mercy Health, all AFC Urgent Care Bon Secours centers accept most major insurance plans and offer affordable pricing options for patients without insurance. The centers are staffed by licensed medical professionals including physicians, advanced care practitioners, medical assistants and radiologic technologists. The center can help refer patients in need of a Primary Care Provider or Specialty Care within the broader health care system.
