SYLACAUGA, ALABAMA January 17 — Fastpace Health Urgent Care is now open on Highway 280 in Sylacauga. The new urgent care opened its doors Monday, January 16th and celebrated the Grand Opening with a ribbon cutting sponsored by the Sylacauga Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, January 17th. Offering urgent care, primary care, telehealth, behavioral health, orthopedic, dermatology, and occupational health serivces, Fastpace is serving the immediate medical needs of the Sylacauga area.
Doug Deloach is the regional director for Fastpace Health Urgent Care. He says, “We are so excited to be in Sylacauga. We offer EKG, X-ray, full labs, D.O.T. physicals, and drug screenings. Whatever you need, pediatric to geriatric, we provide it from an urgent care standpoint. If we can’t handle it here, we know the providers at the hospital that can handle it.”
Brenlee Richardson works the front desk with admissions and helps patients. She spoke of Fastpace’s easy to use registration system. “We are a walk-in clinic, but you can also go online and register. It is so easy to add your information. When you arrive, we have a kiosk you use to check in and you can see your place in line on the screen in the lobby.
Fastpace Health Urgent Care offers other medical services not necessarily deemed as “urgent,” such as dermatology, lab screenings, and behavioral health screenings. The second half of the building remains empty for now, but Deloach assured that the space will be used for medical needs in the near future.
“What sets us apart are two important things: One, we have licensed X-Ray techs. We offer full X-Ray services. Two, we do not want patients to think we have a limited amount of patients we can see per day. If you need medical help, come see us. As long as we’re open, we will help you. That’s what urgent care is about- being seen right away. If we can fix it, we will. We will not flood the emergency room with people we could help here. The staff here have experience in ICU and ER departments, so you are in good hands with us,” says Deloach.
Fastpace Health Urgent Care is located at 41375 US Hwy 280, in front of the new Publix development. It is open Monday through Friday 8 am to 8 pm and Saturday and Sunday 8 am to 6 pm. To learn more and schedule a visit, go to www.fastpacehealth.com.
