Riverside Community Hospital in partnership with CareNow® Urgent Care is introducing Virtual Care.

We’re committed to providing the care you need, when and where you need it. That’s why we’re affiliated with CareNow Urgent Care. You can connect with a CareNow provider for a virtual visit from the comfort of your own home.

How it works:

  1. The CareNow team will send you a link to access your virtual visit
  2. Talk in real time with a CareNow provider

Please note: This is not an in-clinic visit.

The next time you or a loved one is under the weather, CareNow is here for you with highly qualified providers at the times and places that are most convenient for you.

ER and Virtual Urgent Care

ER and Virtual Urgent Care is a great option if you are unable to see your primary care doctor or if your condition is not serious enough for the ER. Urgent care clinics typically treat minor illnesses like the flu, strep throat, or 24-hour bugs.

Although urgent care centers are equipped to quickly diagnose and treat a variety of minor illnesses and injuries, if you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency call 911 immediately.

If you need you need to be seen in-person by a provider or specialists after your virtual visit, CareNow can help you get connected.
