FamilyCare Health Centers held a grand opening for its first designated walk-in clinic, ConvenientCare, on Tuesday, February 14 in partnership with Fruth Pharmacy in Hurricane. The clinic, now in operation, offers services for all urgent medical needs such as colds, sore throats, COVID testing and vaccines, flu, infections, and more.
“ConvenientCare is FamilyCare’s newest endeavor to provide comprehensive care for our communities,” said Craig Glover, president and CEO of FamilyCare. “We are excited to introduce this site for anyone needing immediate, quality care for injuries and illnesses.”
Tuesday’s event, which was open to the public, featured a ribbon cutting ceremony, tour of the site, and remarks from partners and stakeholders.
“The City of Hurricane is a growing and busy community,” said City of Hurricane Mayor Scott Edwards. “ConvenientCare will give the families and professionals who live and work around Hurricane a great option for quick and quality medical attention.”
“Fruth Pharmacy is excited to be partnering with FamilyCare to bring affordable, convenient care to our community,” said Lynne Fruth, president and chairman of Fruth Pharmacy. “FamilyCare has been providing health services in Putnam County for many years, and this clinic will meet the needs of patients needing walk-in care and those without a medical home.”
In addition to the Hurricane ConvenientCare location, FamilyCare will soon rebrand the current urgent care site in St. Albans. Learn more about ConvenientCare at www.convenientcarewv.org.
