Ribbon Cutting – Gem Express Care
Gem Express Care is a walk-in medical clinic that is independently owned and operated by Joseph W. Petrie, PAC and his wife BreeAnn M. Petrie, PAC. They are fellow Emmett residents who love this community and want to help keep Emmett a great place to live and raise a family. Clinic services include the evaluation and treatment of acute/non-emergent medical conditions including illnesses, injuries, and minor lacerations/burns. They provide Urgent Care level services, but without onsite radiology or labs. The Chamber of Commerce is excited to welcome Gem Express Care to the community as our newest member!
Gem Express Care was established with the goal of providing affordable and high-quality medical care for those within and around Gem County. The cost of healthcare continues to increase and many individuals and families are purchasing lower cost high deductible health insurance plans. This has led to increased out of pocket expenses for the medical care they receive. Gem Express Care wants to provide an affordable option for those individuals and families.
To help meet their goal, Gem Express Care provides medical care based on free-market principles in which the services provided are patient-driven instead of insurance dictated. Also, price transparency allows their patients to make informed decisions about their care and save them money. There is a price menu posted in clinic and online. While they focus on providing affordable healthcare to those paying out of pocket or utilizing Health Savings Accounts, they do accept all insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare.
Special offers at Gem Express Care include significant discounts for those patients that elect to pay with cash or card at time of service instead of billing insurance. An itemized receipt will be provided to the patient to submit to insurance if desired. They also offer medical discount cards; contact the office for details.
Gem Express Care is located at 829B S. Washington in Emmett (just south of Banducci’s) and operates Monday – Friday from 5:30pm-8pm with expanded hours to come in the near future.
