CHP Mobile Health Offers Same-Day Urgent Care

Print Story | Email Story
GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — The CHP Berkshires Mobile Health team now offers Same-Day Urgent Care in the Berkshires, whenever mobile health vehicles are on the road. 
 
The mobile care team travels Berkshire County cities and towns from Sheffield to North Adams, on weekdays and some weekends.
 
Same-Day care is an option for patients who are feeling sick but can't get into see a primary care provider. The service is also ideal for anyone who wants to avoid the high cost of using an emergency room for a non-emergency health problem. 
 
In addition, Mobile Health Same-Day care is convenient for:
  • CHP patients who may need a sick visit closer to home or work
  • Non-CHP patients who may not have access to a primary care provider
  • Berkshire area visitors who may fall sick while vacationing
  • Patients with or without health insurance coverage
CHP mobile services operate just like a typical urgent care or primary care practice. The care team can diagnose and treat a variety of conditions ranging from sore throats, earaches, stomach bugs, respiratory illness, UTIs, STDs and more. A full list of services can be found here.
 
The Mobile Health team includes nurses, medical assistants, a family nurse practitioner, physician assistant and Community Health Workers.
 
Just as in a traditional urgent care or medical practice, co-pays and deductibles may apply for mobile care. A sliding fee scale is available to eligible patients as well.
 
Walk-ups are welcome; appointments are appreciated. Info: (413) 528-0457.
