ReadyCare. ReadyCare is PIP’s urgent care clinic within a clinic. It’s an exciting new way to think about health care for your child. Nobody wants health care to become more complicated, more confusing or more time consuming.
ReadyCare is the answer. We have made the process simpler for parents. We have eliminated the need to call for an appointment time for simple illnesses. We made it easier for you to come into the clinic when you want to come in. We made it effortless to get quality care for your children when there is a simple illness or injury.
What happens when daycare calls and says your child has pinkeye? What happens when your child wakes up and complains of an earache? What if your toddler falls off the couch and won’t stop crying?
Do ReadyCare. If your child has an acute illness or injury, you show up at any of our clinics during regular hours or at our Maple Grove clinic after hours. You sign in, your name is called and a provider sees you. Simple.
This new clinic within a clinic is not meant to eliminate your option to see the provider you usually see, or your choice to have a scheduled appointment. We still encourage you to try to see your usual provider for simple problems with a scheduled appointment.
If you have a complicated or ongoing health problem, you should call ahead and arrange an appointment as you always have. Appointments for chronic illnesses and well child exams will continue to be scheduled with your primary care provider since this is not typically what we will see in ReadyCare.
Use ReadyCare for:
Problems that have been going on for some time, like stomachaches and headaches are best cared for by your primary care provider at a scheduled appointment time. We recommend children with complex medical problems schedule regular appointments, and rechecks for chronic issues should be scheduled with your child's primary care provider.
If you have any questions about ReadyCare services, or would like our help in determining the best appointment type for your child, please call the clinic.
