Augusta University College of Nursing’s Nurse-Managed Health Center is now accepting Augusta University Health System (UMR) insurance. The NMHC, located on the first floor of the university’s Health Sciences building, “can provide convenient care for employees of the AU enterprise and their families,” says Dr. J. Dwayne Hooks, executive associate dean of the College of Nursing.
Across the country, NMHCs are meeting community needs by providing patients primary health care services and acute and chronic disease management. Clinics led by advanced practice registered nurses have shown positive effects regarding patient satisfaction and health outcomes. On-site health clinics encourage employees to keep on top of health problems, which can correspond to reducing medical costs.
“Being a part of AU Health’s Cerner network allows us to offer patients unparalleled continuity of care,” according to Dr. Janis Coffin. Located on the Augusta University Health Sciences campus, the NMHC offers:
- Same-day and walk-in appointments
- Dedicated parking
- Access to patient portal
- Ability to establish care with a PCP
In the season of colds, flus, and extra trips to your health care providers, why not visit the NMHC on our campus? Dr. Tranika Brown is the center’s full-time nurse practitioner and is devoted to “providing quality care to patients and families.”
She noted, “The overall health and well-being of employees is equally important. Your health truly matters.”
