Righttime Medical Care coming to Woodmoor Shopping Center

A medical clinic will be moving in to the space previously occupied by Tuesday Morning.  Righttime Medical Care, which has locations across central Maryland, plans to open the clinic by the end of this Spring.  This space is is one of the larger ones in the shopping center, only second in size to CVS.  This will be the first walk-in medical clinic in Four Corers.  There are several doctors offices around the intersection, but none provide urgent care like this facility will.  I contacted Righttime about their new clinic and got this prompt response:



The location at Four Corners will be our 12th location in Maryland, and the fifth in Montgomery County (we're also in Rockville, Gaithersburg, Olney and have one opening in Germantown this April). We're slated to open in May this year and the 7,500 square foot Care Center will offer urgent care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries to patients of all ages (including newborns) from 7am to midnight, 365 days a year. Righttime will occupy the former Tuesday Morning space at Woodmoor Shopping Center. The Silver Spring location will have eight exam rooms, two trauma bays and an x-ray room. We offer same-day appointments online at MyRighttime.com and through our 24-hour Call Center at 888-808-6483. Righttime provides on-site low-radiation digital x-rays, lab testing, prescription services and works with primary care providers and specialists through secure electronic medical records.

Righttime also offers the diagnosis, evaluation and treatment and mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI) through its program, HeadFirst Sports Injury and Concussion Care. This includes post-injury medical evaluations for patients of all ages, including steps for a safe return to play, work or school, as well as neurocognitive baseline testing for sports teams and individuals. The HeadFirst medical team also offers support to trainers and coaches and a community concussion awareness program. HeadFirst will have a testing center and exam rooms at the Righttime Silver Spring location.
 
We're looking forward to caring for the community of Silver Spring!
I think this will be a good addition to Four Corners.  It will provide an alternative to going to the ER at Holy Cross for injuries that are too serious to treat on your own, but not serious enough to warrant a hospital visit.  The hours concerned me at first, 7 AM-Midnight, as none of the other businesses at the shopping center are open after 10 PM.  It might be a good thing though, to have people at the shopping center at times when they otherwise wouldn't be there.  More people equals more witnesses, which provides a deterrent to crimes such as robbery and theft.    As the info says, the clinic is slated to open this May.  If you have any questions or concerns, share them in the comments, and I can relay them to my contact at Righttime. 

UPDATE:  the opening date has been pushed back to June 1.  They have encountered an issue with the building that has caused a small delay.

Masons at work on the parking lot side of the clinic.  I'm not sure if they are adding more windows, or if they are expanding the old entrance previously used by Kuglers (Tuesday Morning used the entrance on the University Blvd side of the site).

  1. That another clinic is going into this area was a surprise to me---when just up the street, on Lockwood, are two other urgent care clinics. We've gone to the "Doctor Next Door" and have really liked the physician there. The waiting room is always empty. One day we saw a person advertising the clinic with a sign, out on Colesville Rd. The other concern is parking. Both front and back lots are sometimes completely full. One of the merchants said that commuters park there--and that sometimes the store owners have trouble finding parking.

  6. This is really good news. I'm glad the people in this area will be getting the help they need for mild issues quicker than they would at a doctor's office. That's nice how they responded to you so quickly. We could use a clinic like this in my area as well.

    1. I agree, it's really great that the people who live in this area will be able to receive the care that they need with a new emergency care center. I live in a really big city, so there are a number of emergency care centers available. I don't know how many there are, but it seems like there's a need for more. The last time I was at the ER I had to take my son in for emergency care after he had a near fatal accident. It was packed full of people. I was really worried that my son wouldn't get the care that he needed. He's okay now. It's a good thing to have an emergency care center that's nearby.

  7. I'm glad to see that more urgent care centers are opening up. Granted going to the ER is not always a good thing, but being able to be treated right away is. Urgent care centers are places you can go for any minor illness or injury. I know that if I were to get sick, I would make an appointment at one. http://www.24hoururgentcareofthedesert.com/Medical-Services-Medical-Treatment-Indio-CA.html
