At PCA of Hagerstown, our dynamic team collaborates seamlessly to deliver outstanding outpatient care. Our primary objective is to keep our patients out of the hospital, positioning ourselves as your dedicated ‘health coaches.’
In the event that hospitalization is necessary, rest assured that our patients receive expert management from a hospitalist, typically an internist specialized in hospital care. We work closely with these hospitalists, providing crucial medical information for the patient’s benefit during their hospital stay. The collaboration extends beyond, as the hospitalist routinely shares pertinent details about the patient’s hospital experience with our office. Post-hospitalization, our commitment is to see every patient within one week of discharge.
Beyond outpatient care, our services encompass preoperative examinations for specialists, school physicals, end-of-life counseling, and yearly Medicare Wellness Exams. The utilization of an electronic health record empowers us to track and ensure timely key tests and immunizations. For added convenience, we perform EKGs in-house when necessary.
For patients with chronic medical conditions, we recommend follow-up visits every 3-6 months, tailored to individual needs and age. However, we encourage immediate contact if a new health concern arises, offering dedicated slots daily for urgent visits. Why visit an urgent care that isn’t familiar with your medical history when we are?
Your health is our priority, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to meet you, working together to achieve your best possible health.
