Cigna Medical Group Announces Grand Opening of CMG CareToday Clinic in Downtown Phoenix

PHOENIX, May 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Cigna Medical Group has announced the opening of its newest CMG CareToday convenience care medical clinic in downtown Phoenix. This brings the total number of clinics to nine since CMG CareToday's launch in 2007.

Staffed by board-certified nurse practitioners and physician assistants under the direction of medical director, Corinne Bell, DO, MBA, the clinics offer walk-in medical care for unscheduled patients with low acuity conditions such as colds, flu, sore throat, lower back pain, ear aches, bladder infections and pink eye. In addition, the clinics offer pregnancy tests and child and adult immunizations, including flu shots. School, sports and camp physicals are also available.  

"We know demand is high for basic medical care that is easily accessible during work hours," said Kurt A. Weimer, president of Cigna Medical Group. "Our new CMG CareToday downtown location makes it a strong addition to the area and brings needed resources to the large number of people who work in or visit the area."

First time visits to any CMG CareToday location are $29 retail; subsequent visits are $59. Lab services range between $10 and $15 and a select number of generic prescription medications are available for $10 or $15. CIGNA customers (and individuals covered under other accepted health plans) pay only their office visit co-pay or co-insurance. Additionally, Cigna Medical Group patients who visit CMG CareToday will have their medical records transferred seamlessly through an electronic health record directly to their primary care physician for future follow-up.

On Thursday, May 6, Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon and dignitaries from the city, county and state governments as well as community and civic leaders, joined Cigna Medical Group for a special ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the addition of the downtown CMG CareToday location. According to the Downtown Phoenix Partnership, this location is the first no-appointment convenience care clinic in Phoenix's downtown core.
