ABOUT INTUITIVE HEALTH
Founded in 2008, Intuitive Health pioneered the combined emergency room and urgent care model. Intuitive Health partners with established health systems nationwide to build, operate and launch retail health care facilities that provide urgent care and emergency room services under one roof. Current partners include Baptist Health in Florida, Riverview Health in Indiana, Presbyterian Healthcare Services in New Mexico and their flagship center, Legacy ER & Urgent Care with six locations in the Dallas - Fort Worth area. Intuitive Health's patient-centered, retail care model is built on a proven business system focused on concierge-level customer service and transparency. Each facility has on-site lab equipment, a radiology suite with X-ray and multi-slice CT scanners, and is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Every patient is examined by a board-certified and ER-licensed physician, regardless of the level of care they need. As an objective criterion, the physician determines if the appropriate care is emergent or urgent care. Patients are billed accordingly, only paying for the care they require, which eliminates inappropriate emergency room utilization. This proven model establishes a cost-effective, time-efficient and more personal way to deliver high-quality medical service at the appropriate cost, which garners long-term patient loyalty. The Intuitive Health model increases market share for partnered health care systems by expanding their footprint with conveniently located centers. For more information, please visit IHERUC.com.
