CareWell Urgent Care Names Bianca Wilfork as Spokesperson
QUINCY, Mass., February 13th, 2015 – CareWell Urgent Care today announced Bianca Wilfork as its new spokesperson. The wife of Super Bowl champion New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, Bianca has been using urgent care centers for her family’s health needs for many years.
Bianca met Vince while he was in college and she was a single parent working two jobs to provide for her family. Struggling to get by, Bianca depended on urgent care centers for affordable, convenient medical care for her family. “I’ve been a fan of urgent care centers since living in Florida as a single mom,” Bianca said. “It all started when my son’s pediatrician wanted him brought to the ER for a medical issue. I didn’t want my child to have to wait hours for care, so we visited an urgent care center instead. They saw us immediately, provided top-notch care and we were in and out in under an hour. When I moved to Massachusetts, I started bringing my family to CareWell Urgent Care centers and we’ve been thrilled with our visits.”
Now a resident of Franklin, MA and the mother of three children, Bianca has teamed up with CareWell to help educate consumers about the centers’ offerings, which include treatment from Board-certified doctors for all non-life-threatening, but still urgent, illness or injury, including colds, flu, infections, fractures, cuts, rashes and allergic reactions. Centers also offer preventative care such as flu shots, vaccinations and routine physical exams such as sport physicals, and have on-site x-ray and lab capabilities. No referral or appointment is necessary.
“We’re thrilled to have Bianca as part of the CareWell team,” said CEO Shaun Ginter. “She’s a busy mom who knows how challenging it can be to get excellent healthcare exactly when you need it. We give our patients flexible hours and they’re usually seen by a doctor within minutes of arriving. That’s so important, especially at the peak of cold and flu season.”
CareWell functions as an extension of a patient’s own primary care provider regardless of where the patient lives. With the patient’s permission, CareWell will forward x-rays, lab results and diagnostic notes to the patient’s own doctor within 24 hours of their visit.
CareWell Urgent Care centers accept most insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid, and the co-pay and visit fees are comparable to an office visit with your primary care doctor. If you do not have insurance, CareWell also offers affordable self-pay rates. CareWell urgent care centers are open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
