Tower Health Urgent Care Opening in Gilbertsville

GILBERTSVILLE PA – Tower Health, the non-profit regional health care provider that owns Pottstown and Phoenixville hospitals, said it intends to open a unit of its Tower Health Urgent Care business on March 18 (202; Wednesday) at a new location in Gilbertsville, 1050 E. Philadelphia Ave. Its offices will offer patients daily, year-round access to health care from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., it said.

Walk-in care will be available for a variety of conditions, including colds, flu, allergies, asthma, sore throat, sports injuries, minor lacerations, sprains, earaches and ear infections; and preventive services such as physicals, and occupational health.

Physicians and other providers at the Gilbertsville site will use Epic, an electronic medical database that organizes all patient information into a single, digitally accessed health record. It allows providers to make informed clinical decisions that result in improved outcomes, Tower said.

Gilbertsville “was strategically selected for a new urgent care location because of the rapid development in the area,” according to Tower Vice President Dr. Charles Barbera. Tower Health Urgent Care claims to be “the largest provider of urgent care services by locations in southeastern Pennsylvania.”
