Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care, a partnership created to bring a new model of patient-focused urgent care centers to central and eastern Connecticut, today announced the opening of its first center in Avon.

Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care's Avon center will operate seven days a week with extended evening hours, welcome walk-in patients and offer the opportunity to "save your spot" through a simple online check-in. It also will feature transparent charting on a wide screen in each exam room, mobile X-ray equipment and a unified electronic medical record that can be accessed by caregivers across the Hartford HealthCare network.

Hartford HealthCare-GoHealth Urgent Care will open at least 15 centers within the next 18 months, spanning Hartford HealthCare's service area.
