Bianca Wilfork, a mother of three and the wife of Pats veteran defensive lineman Vince
Wilfork, is raising their children in Franklin and is an active member of the community. But all the Super Bowl rings in the world can’t prevent illness and injuries—especially with a house full of children and friends. That’s why Bianca says that she’s been using urgent care centers for many years.
Before marrying Vince, Bianca was single mother living in Florida. That’s where she first discovered urgent care and what it could provide for her family. Now, she’ll be a spokesperson for the company to educate consumers about what urgent care is and what kind of services they provide.
“I’ve been a fan of urgent care centers since living in Florida as a single mom,” Bianca said in a statement. “It all started when my son’s pediatrician wanted him brought to the ER for a medical issue. I didn’t want my child to have to wait hours for care, so we visited an urgent care center instead. They saw us immediately, provided top-notch care and we were in and out in under an hour. When I moved to Massachusetts, I started bringing my family to CareWell Urgent Care centers and we’ve been thrilled with our visits.”
CareWell has 10 New England locations (Billerica, Cambridge, Framingham, Lexington, Needham, Norwell, Peabody, South Dennis, Tewksbury, and Warwick, RI). All centers have board-certified doctors available and treat “non-life-threatening, but still urgent” illnesses and injuries including colds, flu, infections, fractures, and allergic reactions. The centers also offer preventative care services such as flu shots, vaccinations, and sports physicals.
No appointment necessary. CareWell Urgent Care centers accept most insurance plans including Medicare and Medicaid. Centers are open seven days a week, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. carewellurgentcare.com.
