Passengers and staff at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, Arizona, now have access to walk-in care services for non-life-threatening illnesses, minor injuries and select prescriptions following the opening of USCareWays in Terminal 4 (T4).
Opened in partnership with airport concessionaire Paradies Lagardère, the new walk-in medical center will open daily between 8:00am and 8:00pm to treat any patients over the age of six months who need to see a medical provider quickly. Patients also have a virtual care appointment option through uscareways.com.
Dr John Shufeldt, CEO and medical director at USCareWays, said, “Millions of passengers and airline employees utilize Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport each month and many may not have a medical provider in Arizona or be able to see theirs before traveling; these patients will find it very convenient to be seen at the USCareWays urgent care location (or virtually) and receive their on-site prescriptions at the same time.”
Typical travel ailments and injuries that can be treated at USCareWays include ear infections, asthma, anxiety, flu, cold/cough, dehydration, rashes, lacerations, contusions and sprains.
Gregg Paradies, president and CEO, Paradies Lagardère, said, “USCareWays is one of the most innovative concepts in today’s airport environment, and we appreciate the opportunity to partner with a visionary such as Dr Shufeldt and look forward to further working with him and his team.”
In addition, USCareWays will provide employees with pre-employment screening, occupational health services, physicals and select vaccinations.
