Quality health care from home

The addition of telemedicine provides a new dimension to vybe's extensive list of services. Patients use any web-enabled device (computer, tablet, smart phone) to receive a video consultation with a vybe clinician from any location within Pennsylvania—seven days a week and no appointment needed. Similar to in-person visits, patients use advance online check-in to save their spot in line for the next available video visit with a provider.  vybe video visits are covered by most insurance plans and there are self-pay rates available.  

"Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, providing high quality care while maintaining a safe environment for patients, colleagues, and the communities we serve is our highest priority," said Peter Hotz, vybe urgent care's president and CEO. "We're pleased to offer easy access to video visits and we're encouraging our patients to take advantage of this new service whenever possible, and especially if they're exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms or have concerns about exposure."  

A wide range of ailments is appropriate for diagnosis and treatment using telemedicine, such as allergies, coughs, fevers, sinus infections, and more. "Our new video visits are perfect for patients who need to be seen for illnesses, injuries and possible COVID-19 and want to do so while limiting community exposure," explains Dr. Geoff Winkley, vybe's Medical Director. "The virtual visit delivers high quality care and includes typical post visit follow-up.  We can send prescriptions directly to a local pharmacy and drive up testing for COVID-19 is available at a vybe center after a video visit, if necessary." 

In addition to telemedicine, vybe locations remain open to provide timely treatment for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses, while also providing on-site x-rays, stitches, vaccination, physicals and lab testing, including COVID-19.

From the beginning, vybe's goal has been to deliver quality healthcare to all neighborhoods in Philadelphia and surrounding areas. That has become a shared belief of the over 100 clinicians and employees who work for vybe urgent care throughout the Philadelphia region.  Virtual visits will ensure that everyone has access to quality, convenient healthcare, even during these unprecedented times.

Bey scores 33, leads No. 16 Villanova past Georgetown 80-66

Jun 3, 2020

PHILADELPHIA — Saddiq Bey hit eight 3-pointers and scored a career-high 33 points to lead No. 16 Villanova to an 80-66 win over Georgetown on Saturday. Bey, a 6-foot-8 sophomore forward, hadn't been much of a 3-pointer shooter this season for the Wildcats (12-3, 3-1 Big East). He'd made only 21 and four of those came in a nonconference game against Ohio. He shot just 3-for-10 overall in a win this week at Creighton, hardly a sign he was about to bust out with a career game against the Hoyas (11-6, 1-3). Left open, and determined to shoot, Bey had...

The only real difference is the sideline he now controls. The longtime Connecticut coach added another milestone Friday night when the University of Saint Joseph beat Pratt Institute 105-61. Now in his second season coaching in Division III, Calhoun joined Mike Krzyzewski, Jim Boeheim and Bob Knight — all former rivals and national champions at college basketball’s highest level — as the only coaches to coach at least 10 seasons in Division I...
