OrthoConnecticut’s urgent care service, OrthoCare Express, has proven to be a valuable resource during the Covid-19 global pandemic. Just about every parent in Fairfield County has uttered the words to their child, “Don’t get hurt! I’m not taking you to the emergency room!” People have avoided hospitals, especially the emergency rooms, for fear of contracting the virus or adding more caseloads to already overloaded facilities.
One local mom, thrilled with OrthoCare Express’ emergency walk-in location in Danbury, exclaimed, “I kept telling my kids to be careful because I didn’t want to take them to the ER. Unfortunately, I forgot to tell that to my husband! He fell and instead of the ER, I drove him to OrthoCare Express in Danbury where he was X-rayed and cast in no time at all. We avoided the ER and taught my husband an important lesson…to always listen to mom!”
At OrthoCare Express, patients in emergency situations can receive an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan from an orthopedic surgeon or orthopedic physician assistant. The facility offers the convenience of on-site digital X-ray technology, casting and splinting services. The urgent care office is currently open Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm and Saturday and Sunday 9 am-3 pm at 2 Riverview Drive in the Berkshire Corporate Park in Danbury.
