PEOPLECAREANYWHERE Whether you need close urgent care, primary and specialty care medicine right in your neighborhood or prefer to log into a virtual health visit, Wellstar makes it easy to get quality care at your convenience.

It’s Wednesday afternoon and Donna has a routine visit scheduled with her Wellstar cardiologist. It’s been a crazy morning with work and family duties. As Donna opens her laptop to begin her appointment, she takes a deep breath, and feels her heart rate slow. Thanks toWellstar telemedicine, Donna can often visit with her care team from home, without battling traffic and parking. Wellstar Health System continues to innovate, making care not only closer, but more convenient. That’s because patients like Donna have told us that accessibility to physicians, nurses, testing and procedures matters more now than ever.

Whether it’s a virtual medical appointment or a one-stop visit to her local health park for blood work and a quick bite, Donna loves knowing that the services she and her family need are as close as the neighborhood grocery store. At Wellstar health parks, hospitals, physicians’ offices and other locations, convenience goes hand in hand with collaboration. We know that the best healthcare is built on partnerships. When patients participate in their healthcare decisions, they feel better about the process and they experience more favorable outcomes.
