Brian E. Keeley, President & CEO of Baptist Health South Florida has invited all South Florida residents to experience Baptist Health’s Care On Demand urgent care service for free in a letter published in all the major local newspapers. Powered by telehealth provider American Well, Care On Demand provides patients with immediate virtual access to licensed doctors and experts anywhere 24/7 for urgent care and behavioral health specialties.
“This is just one of many ways Baptist Health is making affordable healthcare easier and more convenient for you,” Mr. Keeley wrote. “To celebrate this milestone in digital health, we are offering a FREE online urgent care visit to everyone who lives in South Florida. We want you to experience a better way to get better!”
Care On Demand Model for Urgent Care
Baptist Health pioneered the concept of urgent care centers in the region and today has 25 such centers from the Florida Keys to Palm Beach County. Care On Demand is a natural extension of Baptist Health’s urgent care network, allowing patients with non-life-threatening illness or injury to bypass busy emergency rooms and get 24/7 online access to its trusted doctors and specialists.
How Care On Demand Works
Baptist Health Care On Demand is easy to use. Patients download the free Care On Demand app on their iPhone, laptop or computer, provide a bit of personal information, and then request a virtual visit that immediately connects them with a physician or other expert of their choice. Consultations typically last 10 to 15 minutes and, if prescription medicines are needed, they can be sent directly to the nearest pharmacy. South Florida residents who want to take advantage of the offer can use the code FREEURGENTCARE when launching the app for their first virtual visit.
Why It Matters
“Virtual medicine is growing in popularity because it’s convenient, accessible and affordable,” said Dr. David Mishkin, medical director of Baptist Health Care On Demand. “We see it as the future of healthcare, and we aim to be a leader in that space.”
