Righttime Medical Care Expanding and Enhancing Service
The popular urgent-care center is expanding to take over its entire building on Generals Highway.
Workers have been toiling away inside Righttime Medical Care to allow the urgent-care clinic to take over its entire building on Generals Highway.
When renovations are complete the clinic will encompass about 6,000 square feet and look similar to Righttime's newer locations in Arundel Mills and Gaithersburg. The changes will give it about 50 percent more space and help improve the way doctors provide care, officials said.
In addition to enhanced patient rooms and waiting area, the location also will have other amenities such as a 10-second X-ray machine that uses a fraction of the radition of a typical machine.
Dr. Robert Graw Jr., Righttime CEO and chief pediatrician, said the renovations will help the clinic continue to live up to its motto of "Righttime for a lifetime."
"We now see the acuity and the age of our patients have increased," Graw said. "Only 1 percent of our patients end up going to the hospital."
Righttime opened in 1989 as Nighttime Pediatrics, offering care 365 days a year in the evening and on weekends. In 1994, they opened a second location in Pasadena, then changed the name in 1996 to Nighttime Pediatrics and Parents Too.
Another name change followed in 1998 to Nighttime Pediatrics and Adults Too.
Righttime has eight locations throughout Anne Arundel, Howard and Montgomery counties, Graw said. He also said they are planning to open four new locations in the coming months.
