Robert Rohatsch, MD, FACEP, Chief Executive Officer and a founding member of Urgent Care of Connecticut. “We look forward to supporting the greater Groton community as an adjunct to primary care physicians on evenings, weekends, and holidays and as a convenient alternative to visiting the emergency room for any non-life threatening condition or illness.” “As a veteran-friendly company, we welcome the opportunity to serve the military and federal employees—and their families—who live in the Groton area in particular.”
The Groton urgent care center will be located at Groton Square (220 Route 12) and is scheduled to open in February 2014, upon completion of building renovations.
