AccuHealth Group will significantly improve patient care by managing the patient through the entire cycle of consultation, state of the art testing, diagnosis, in-house referrals and treatment. No longer will patients have to wait days or weeks to see specialists they are referred to. Patients will now be able to obtain quick and thorough care while being in control of the whole process under the group. This promotes quick and effective treatment and saves patients money in redundant co-pays and other high fees associated with repetitive visits.
“The government’s role in healthcare mandates change. At AccuHealth we accept this and will be proactive and accountable for the quality of patient care,” said John Quinn, CEO of AccuHealth Group. Quinn added that the AccuHealth Group facility has been in development for years and was designed to manage the patient’s needs and control the rising costs associated with healthcare.
AccuHealth Group is not the average Urgent Care facility that has become en vogue the last few years. Instead, patients who visit this facility will have access to specialists in internal medicine, cardiology, pulmonology, radiology, chiropractic, as well as on site state-of-the art testing and a full-service blood lab, in addition to urgent care.
AccuHealth Group’s medical director Dr. Stuart Okin, MD and cardiologist of St. Francis Hospital, thinks ”…I am excited to be involved in this endeavor. We look forward to providing excellent and rapid care at our new facility. We will have in house specialists available for immediate diagnosis and treatment, cutting down tremendously on wait times and accompanying anxiety.”
Another unique aspect of AccuHealth Group is their partnering with local not-for-profit charity, “Pitch for a Cure”. Bayshore-based “Pitch for a Cure” is dedicated to striking out juvenile diabetes. “We at AccuHealth Group are extremely proud to be affiliated with a grass roots organization like “Pitch for a Cure” that is working so hard to wipe out JD. To help their efforts, AccuHelath Group will proudly dedicate one day each month, welcoming parents of children at risk for Juvenile Diabetes for free blood testing and JD awareness,” said Frank La Grega, Accuhealth Group Chief Business Strategist.
Opening Day will be Monday April 2 at 11:00am at 1056 Jericho Turnpike. Smithtown Town Supervisor Patrick Vecchio will be present at the official ribbon cutting ceremony as well as former Mets and Yankees players Dwight Gooden and John Franco. “Pitch For a Cure” president Rob Dromerhauser, a former catcher for the Mets, will also be in attendance.
