PhysicianOne Urgent Care to Donate to a Local Charity Selected by the Community

PhysicianOne Urgent Care is hosting an online vote for community members to select the charity they would like to see supported

It has been nine years since PhysicianOne Urgent Care opened Connecticut's first (and still the only) UCAOA accredited urgent care center in Southbury, which is now an Affiliate of Yale New Haven Health System. The physician-founded urgent care organization supports local families 365-days per year by offering high-quality walk-in urgent care for all ages. To help celebrate the anniversary and the completion of a renovation to the center, they're offering even greater support for local communities by donating to a local charity to be chosen by members of the community.

"We wanted to do something special for this community," said Dr. Jeannie Kenkare, Chief Medical Officer and PhysicianOne Urgent Care co-founder. "We are thrilled to have completed the renovation that will help us better serve our patients, and we wanted to invest in the Southbury community at the same time. Watching families grow and meeting new residents every day has been such a privilege over the last nine years."

There are three local charities to choose from; Safe Haven of Greater Waterbury, The Southbury Foodbank, and Animals for Life. Voting begins online, on Monday, July 17. You do not need to be a patient of PhysicianOne Urgent Care to cast a vote for the local charity you would like supported, and you can vote as many times as you like between July 17 and July 31. It's as simple as that.

"Our experienced providers are here to treat patients every day of the year for illnesses and injuries, from the common cold to broken bones, and to provide medical services beyond urgent care, including sports physicals and flu shots," continues Kenkare. "As we've grown from one center in Southbury, Connecticut to 18 locations across three states, we are proud to be able to continue to support and give back to our communities."
