The HealthSpot Station is a market leading solution for providing high-quality, interactive healthcare as an alternative for in in-office visit, preventative care, urgent care, and even emergency rooms while still maintaining doctor patient communication at convenient locations nationwide.

HealthSpot is poised to redefine the future of healthcare for clinics, hospitals, doctor’s offices and pharmacies; patients will be able to visit the closest HealthSpot Station to obtain a high quality and convenient visit with a board-certified doctor, even if they are uninsured.
Targeted locations include retail sites such as grocery stores; hospital systems such as urgent care facilities, emergency rooms, doctor’s offices, specialist offices and large businesses where employees could walk down the hall and see a doctor in 20 minutes instead of taking half a day off work; rural areas to increase access for patients who have to drive long distances for follow-up care; as well as military, college campuses, nursing homes, and remote villages in developing countries; and more.
Cashman concluded, “Our goal at HealthSpot is to extend the doctor’s reach of hand as patients enjoy the reach of care.”
