FastCare to celebrate new Einstein FastCare Clinic in Philadelphia

BY Antoinette Alexander

PHILADELPHIA — Bellin Health Care Systems, which established the FastCare brand of retail health clinics in 2006, is celebrating on Dec. 14 the opening of the new Einstein FastCare clinic in the ShopRite of Cheltenham, owned by Brown’s Super Stores.

Leaders of the convenient care industry and dignitaries representing the City of Philadelphia and the Cheltenham Township will convene to celebrate the opening.

The clinic, staffed by nurse practitioners from the Einstein Healthcare Network, will offer a range of primary care and preventive services with an electronic entitlement application service. Nationally, more than 50 health systems operate or partner with convenient care clinics. Einstein Healthcare Network is the second healthcare system in Philadelphia to open a convenient care clinic and the first to open a clinic in an underserved area of the city.

“We have found health systems to be good partners for these clinics, with their existing ties to the local community, utilization of electronic health records, and focus on quality and continuity of care. Partnerships like this one, between Einstein and ShopRite, represent the next generation of convenient care clinics moving into underserved areas,” stated Ken Berndt of FastCare, which partners with 30 health systems to operate clinics around the country.

The ShopRite location where the clinic will be housed has been extensively renovated to coincide with the FastCare opening.

“The Convenient Care Association is a proud partner to FastCare, Einstein and Brown’s Super Stores, and supports these efforts to provide patients with comprehensive access to the goods and services they need to stay healthy,” added Tine Hansen-Turton, executive director of the Philadelphia-based Convenient Care Association, the national trade association representing the retail-based health clinic industry.
