The new clinics will treat patients of all age groups, including newborns. Services on offer will include on-site, same-day lab and X-ray results — as well as options not generally associated with urgent care, such as cosmetic treatments.
Dr. Lisa Tseng is CEO of Optum Clinic. She says the centers will offer memberships, as part of an effort to promote better health year round.
“Included in the $19 annual membership, one can get a flu shot, an immunization screening, skin check, free blood pressure and Body Mass Index check in our clinic at any time.”
Optum is a subsidiary of UnitedHealth Group. The company already employs more than 2,000 workers in the Houston area.
