Madison has long grappled with a need for expanded primary care options to serve our rapidly growing city. Recognizing this critical need, Innova Primary Care is thrilled to announce the opening of their newest location on the southeast side of Madison off of Madison Boulevard. Innova Primary Care is officially open and now accepting new patients.
Innova is in-network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare, & PEEHIP. For those who aren’t on these plans, Innova offers pre-paid agreements to ensure that no one is left without essential primary care.
“We are your doctor’s office that is responsive, respectful, and available to care for you when you need to be heard,” says David Uptagrafft, CFO and Director of Healthcare Experience at Innova Primary Care. “These are the things that we find patients are looking for.”
Their new facility is an impressive 26,000 square feet and is just Phase 1 of their expansion plans, which further demonstrates Innova’s passion for filling a great need in Madison for primary care.
Innova Primary Care offers accessibility around the clock, catering to sick visits and routine care for individuals ages 14 and up.
At its core, Uptagrafft shares that Innova is all about avoiding major negative medical events and improving a patient’s quality of life.
“Avoiding heart attacks, strokes, metastatic cancer – that’s the purpose of primary care. A lot of people understand the purpose of an oil change; The purpose of primary care is simple. It’s important to maintain your body.”
Innova Primary Care’s commitment goes beyond episodic visits.
“We want all of our patients to be in a relationship with us,” Uptagrafft states. “We aren’t just here for a visit every five years; it’s part of our relationship agreement. We require annual check-ups for all of our patients, and we remind them of their visit because your health matters.”
The idea behind this personalized approach is simple but profound: “Your outcomes and quality of life will be better if you are cared for by someone who knows you. Your health is your most important asset.”
Mental health is another aspect that Innova Primary Care takes seriously. Uptagrafft shares “that it’s not just about your blood pressure; It’s about your mind and body.”
Innova offers depression screenings and emphasizes early intervention for mental health issues, understanding the significance of addressing these concerns promptly.
When asked what the name of their office means, Uptagrafft explains that “Innova” is derived from a Latin word that means “renew.” Innova’s website states that “we strive to renew each of our guests with a whole-person approach to wellness focusing on their physical, mental and emotional wellness.”
What sets Innova Primary Care apart is the exceptional level of service they provide. While one patient likened them to the “Publix of healthcare,” Uptagrafft is modest about it.
“You come here because you like to have a pleasant, high-quality experience.”
Innova Primary Care’s Huntsville location was founded in October 2011, and it has witnessed booming growth since its inception.
“Twenty percent of our patients already live in Madison,” says Uptagrafft. “We know there’s a demographic that appreciates the services we render, and we wanted to be more convenient for them.”
Innova Primary Care offers an advanced online system for scheduling appointments and accessing medical advice.
“We are available 24/7,” Uptagrafft assures. “If you don’t think your need is a medical emergency, we encourage you to go to our website, schedule an appointment, and select ‘I need to be seen in the next 24 hours.’
Uptagrafft continues to share that patients will then have the option to select from those who are available to see patients.
Patients at Innova will be treated via a care team approach. Uptagrafft shares that Innova pairs a nurse practitioner with a doctor as well as a group of staff members. He says that Innova is a very cohesive medical clinic, which ensures that patients always have access to their healthcare team.
Innova Primary Care also has Innova Telehealth options too!
