BASS Medical Group’s multi-million dollar Advanced Urgent Care is now open with BASS Urgent Care, BASS Imaging, and BASS Laboratory all under one roof. "Advanced" because, with a wider range of onsite, state-of-the-art diagnostic, imaging, and lab technology, BASS can get to the root of non-emergency illnesses and injuries faster. Among many other health conditions, Urgent Care treats headaches, colds, flu, sore throats, allergies and asthma, ear infections, rashes and itching, urinary tract infections, bronchitis, sports injuries, and swollen glands.
Imaging provides radiology services including MRIs, x-rays, 64 slice CT scans, DEXA scans (non-invasive tests that measure bone mineral density to assess if a person is at risk of osteoporosis or fracture), and ultrasounds—on site.
The new Phillips MR 3T Ingenia Elition S is rated 3T (Tesla) because of its magnetic capacity, superior to traditional 1.5T machines. This 3T MRI offers an immersive audio-visual "in bore" experience to help calm anxious patients and make the time go faster. Videos of nature, animals, boat rides, the ocean, and more are available for viewing—and cartoons are available for young patients.
The full service Lab provides best in class clinical lab services on site using a premier Atellica Solutions machine, which handles a wide array of chemistry and immunoassay analysis. All samples are processed on site on the same day so clinicians can make better, faster decisions.
"We take a very personal approach to healthcare and pay attention to the ease of access to that care—we are, in that sense, a 'one stop shopping' experience for patients," says Howard King, BASS Chief Administrative Officer. "We're pleased to bring these premier services and technologies to Shadelands as an immediate and cost-effective alternative for common illnesses or injuries not requiring more expensive emergency care. We're here for Shadelands employees, should they need medical services during their workday, and we're here for the health and well being of the community at large."
