DispatchHealth Launches in Miami, Florida
Getting medical care is about to get a whole lot easier for Miami, FL, residents. DispatchHealth is excited to announce our launch in the area on April 26th, 2021. We bring convenient, same-day medical care to your doorstep, treating simple to complex illnesses and injuries for a wide variety of patients. Perfect for those who want to avoid unnecessary ER and urgent care trips or in tandem with existing primary care services, our services are comprehensive, covering everything from looping in your doctors after our visit to calling in any necessary prescriptions.
The DispatchHealth Way
Often, symptoms of an injury or illness make it difficult to leave the home to seek necessary medical attention, such as with COPD-related shortness of breath or a minor fracture. And many common conditions, such as CHF and COPD, often send patients to the hospital unnecessarily, resulting in frequent disruptions to life and drawn-out recovery times. That’s where DispatchHealth comes in. We offer convenient, in-home, same-day medical care for simple to complex illnesses, injuries, and conditions, allowing you to receive the care you need without having to set foot off your doorstep. We accept most major forms of insurance—including Medicare and Medicaid—and offer an affordable flat rate to uninsured patients. You can expect to spend about the same as you would on a visit to the urgent care clinic.
People We Serve
DispatchHealth is ideal for anyone who wants to receive medical care within the comfort of their own home. Our services are particularly beneficial for those with mobility limitations, intellectual disabilities, and dementia and/or Alzheimer’s, among others. We also offer pediatric medical care, making us a great choice for busy parents.
We also offer treatment for COVID-19 symptoms along with in-home COVID-19 tests. Test results usually come back within 1-3 days on average, depending on your area. And don’t worry—we’re taking extensive precautions to keep our patients and staff safe from COVID-19 by thoroughly sanitizing our gear between visits and wearing PPE (including gowns, gloves, and shoe covers around patients with respiratory symptoms).
Conditions We Treat
We proudly treat a whole host of simple to complex illnesses, injuries, and conditions. We can suture wounds and handle minor fractures, treat exacerbations of chronic conditions like asthma, COPD, and CHF, and help you recover from pneumonia or bronchitis, along with a variety of other illnesses. We provide IV fluids and antibiotics, migraine cocktails, 12-lead EKG tests, and strep tests.
In short: We’ll arrive at your doorstep equipped with most of the gear you’ll find in the ER, making us a viable alternative for your urgent medical needs (as long as they’re not time-sensitive or life-threatening emergencies—for those, you should call 911!). Have questions about whether we can treat your condition? Don’t hesitate to give us a call and ask!
Thoughts From Local Leader, Lizzie Valencia
Share a bit about your role at DispatchHealth
I am the Market Manager for the Miami location. I have more than 30 years’ experience in the medical field, primarily with running practices. I started off as a Medical Assistant and moved into the operations area of a medical practice. I have extensive knowledge in credentialing, medical billing, and collections. I am bilingual. I was born and raised in Miami and have witnessed this community grow exponentially. In MIA, the Latin influences are a greater here than they are in any other part of the country.
Why are you excited to be a part of DispatchHealth?
I am super excited to be a part of the wonderful organization. I definitely share the values, mission, and vision of DispatchHealth. I am sure we will grow significantly to all other surrounding counties quickly. Our community will definitely benefit from DispatchHealth’s services. We have a large volume of elderly and retired patients that will benefit from our urgent-care-at-home model.
How will DispatchHealth make an impact on healthcare in the Miami area?
We will be a great partner to the large number of assisted living facilities and senior living communities in our area.
Anything else you’d like to share about DispatchHealth’s launch in Miami?
The Miami market will be a slightly different market in the sense that our Latin community is huge. We have people from all over South America, Central America, and Mexico here that will expect all services in Spanish.
