Piedmont Partnership

Summer 2014

Thank you for choosing WellStreet for your urgent care needs. Along with the physicians and staff who have had the honor of caring for you, we are proud to announce that WellStreet Urgent Care and Piedmont Healthcare are partnering to serve our communities which benefit when providers collaborate to eliminate gaps in care.

WellStreet has served the Atlanta community since 2012, and is now the exclusive provider of urgent care for Piedmont at our seven facilities located in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Dunwoody, Johns Creek – Alpharetta, Austell and Virginia Highlands. While the same physicians and staff will continue to serve you, you will notice our new name—Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet—reflected in signage at these locations over the next several weeks.

Piedmont is a not-for-profit, five-hospital health system with multiple groups of physicians providing inpatient and outpatient care to communities in North Georgia for over 100 years.

The reputation and size of Piedmont offers our patients access to primary and specialty care services specific and appropriate to their clinical needs, from expert cardiologists to the latest in orthopedic surgery and injury care.

In addition, WellStreet gains a healthcare partner with a similar commitment to clinical excellence and patient experience as our own. To ensure our patients have access to the best care provided in the most coordinated and efficient way possible, our physicians will implement Piedmont’s clinical quality
program and participate in their clinically integrated health system.

Piedmont Urgent Care facilities operated by WellStreet provide walk-in treatment for non-life- threatening illness and injury seven days a week, 12 hours a day, and are an excellent alternative to busy emergency departments better suited for life-threatening situations and when traditional primary care offices are not open. Our facilities also feature warm welcoming environments, onsite digital X-ray capabilities and accept most major insurance plans, Medicare, Medicaid, as well as attractive self-pay rates including pre-sports and camp participation physicals. Typical visits last less than 45 minutes. Piedmont Urgent Care by WellStreet retains our original vision to set the standard for patient service excellence in urgent care, becoming the provider and employer of choice in the communities we serve. As always, we appreciate the opportunity to exceed your expectations, while providing “uncompromising care…one patient at a time”.
