“We are very excited about our new space and even more excited to be a part of the Newington community,” said Cindi Delaurentis, vice president of clinical operations for the Hartford HealthCare Rehabilitation Network. “We look forward to serving the people of Newington with our partners at GoHealth for a long time.”

  • Physical therapy
  • Sports medicine
  • Balance and Falls
  • Vestibular therapy
  • Concussion management
  • Work injury rehab
  • Golf rehab by Titleist Performance Institute
  • Dry needling

The services available at the Hartford HealthCare/GoHealth Urgent Care center include treatment for:

  • Flu
  • Fever
  • Asthma
  • Allergies
  • Emphysema
  • Minor skin lacerations, cuts

GoHealth centers will also provide lab services and X-rays for joint and bone injuries, using a portable machine that’s wheeled into the examination room. The X-ray machine is among the features that distinguish an urgent care center from a retail clinic, which are usually staffed by nurse practitioners and offer more basic services like flu shots, vaccinations and treatment of minor wounds, joint sprains, poison ivy and other skin conditions.
