Ellicott City, Maryland, August 15, 2018 – Warrior Centric Health (WCH) is honored to celebrate with our first in nation Authorized Warrior Centric Health Clinic™. Premier Health Express Clinic (PHEC) in Howard County, Maryland successfully opened their doors on August 1st, 2018 with the support and efforts from Drs. Samuel and Ofundem Nokuri, Warrior Centric Healthcare Foundation, and American Diversity Group.
First in the Nation – Premier Health Express is an Authorized Warrior Centric Health Clinic™
Located in Columbia Maryland, the Clinic provides onsite telemedicine to local DC, MD, and VA residents as well as internationally. Patients will have access to x-ray, EKG, and waived fees for laboratory testing. In addition, common generic pharmaceuticals will be dispensed on a cash pay basis furthering the convenience and in many cases the cost effectiveness for the patients.
In partnership with the Warrior Centric Healthcare Foundation, the main treatment area will be constructed, dedicated and made veteran centric to honor them. As an adjunct to the Urgent Care, Premier Health Express will be providing telehealth to our Veterans for improved access especially those living far out and have to travel long distances to receive care.
All providers and staff will be Warrior Centric Health credentialed to ensure “white-glove healthcare services” for our United States Veterans on a walk in, referral, or telemedicine basis.
Emerald Five Star Veteran Service Plan
The Premier Health Express Clinic will provide high quality, affordable, and convenient care to all of its patients. In addition, PHEC is proud to offer the Emerald Five Star Veteran Service Plan to honor and support our Veterans. This plan offers Veterans complete care at a 50% discounted rate. This includes telehealth services to enhance access for our Veterans especially those facing transportation, physical or other challenges to obtaining healthcare.
Warrior Centric Health and Premier Health Express
By adopting the Warrior Centric Health Solution Suite™ and proving compliance annually, the Premier Health Express Clinic earns authorization as an Authorized Warrior Centric Health Clinic™. Premier Health Express is the first clinic in the Nation to receive this distinction.
At the opening, Ron Steptoe, CEO of Warrior Centric Health said,
“I am very proud that Warrior Centric Health, LLC is a Maryland and Howard County based company. Although our company’s reach and work is national in scope, it is tremendous to see our beloved State of Maryland taking the lead in the area of healthcare innovation for Veterans receiving optimum care in the private sector with this grand opening.
It was also incredible to have representatives present today from the Offices of Governor Larry Hogan, U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, U.S. Senator Van Holen, U.S. Congressman Elijah Cummings, State Senator Shirley Nathan Pulliam, State Delegates, Howard County Council, and Howard County Executive. The Representatives’ remarks and issued Proclamations were greatly appreciated and a honor.
I look forward to working with each of you as Maryland continues to provide leadership for the nation in innovative Public/Private Partnerships that deliver substantive value and return on investment to the community, region and nation.”
