Patients visiting Floyd Urgent Care in Rome, Cartersville and Centre, Alabama, are now able to save their spot in line. Save My Spot is designed to cut down on time spent in the waiting room.
Patients can go to www.floyd.org/urgentcare and select an Urgent Care location in Rome, Cartersville or Centre. They will be redirected to a secure partner site and asked to provide a general reason for their visit and choose a time. They will also be asked for their email, phone number and date of birth. Children or a spouse can be added if more than one person needs to be seen.
Those who register will receive an email confirming their request and will be notified if estimated wait times change.
“This really gives the patient choices and provides them a way to fit the visits more easily into their busy schedules,” said Al Davis, Administrator of Floyd Primary Care.
He said the check-in service will be particularly helpful in Centre, where Urgent Care and Primary Care share a parking lot. Sometimes, patients might drive by and mistakenly think Urgent Care is busy when Primary Care is seeing more patients at the time.
Davis said Floyd plans to expand the service to all its Urgent Care locations, offering even more patient choices.
