HOUSTON, TX (July 14, 2022) – What started as an idea after a costly weekend visit to a freestanding emergency room, Next Level Urgent Care once again has been recognized by consumers for successfully delivering affordable yet quality urgent care 7 days a week from 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.
The Houston-based collection of neighborhood urgent care clinics has won a Houston Chronicle Best of the Best award in the category of Urgent Care following months of public online voting.
“To be recognized by those we provide care to is certainly the greatest validation of what we’re building,” says Juliet Breeze, MD, CEO and founder of Next Level Urgent Care. “Our goal is quality, affordable care where you need it, when you need it.”
Now with 26 locations and growing, with new clinics planned for Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Beaumont, Next Level Urgent Care treats more than 600,000 patients each year.
At Next Level Urgent Care, patients of all ages receive treatment for chronic and acute illness, fractures, lacerations, contusions and other non-life-threatening injuries at a fraction of the cost of hospital emergency room or other emergency room visits. Each center is open with extended hours, 9 a.m. – 9 p.m., seven days a week and on holidays.
Next Level also offers primary care service through an employer-paid membership model, Next Level PRIME. Businesses pay a flat rate, about $60 per employee, for their workers and their healthcare dependents to receive primary care, urgent care, telemedicine and health coaching, all at no cost to employees. Labs, durable medical equipment and immunizations also are included.
Apart from patient care, the company operates a Clinical Research Department which it established at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. After evaluating one of the first COVID cases in the Houston area, the company participated in clinical trials for several COVID tests and therapies, including its work on behalf of Pfizer’s Paxlovid pill trial which ultimately became available for those with the Omicron subvariant.
