From Apple Seeds to Apple Trees

AppleCare Immediate Care celebrated its first decade of service this summer, marking 10 years since opening their first clinic in June 2004. Since the first opening in Brunswick, Georgia, AppleCare has expanded to serve a total of 12 communities in central and southeastern Georgia, including Camden, Jesup, Baxley, Warner Robins, Perry, Vidalia, Statesboro, Tifton, Valdosta, Douglas and Waycross.

A lot has changed throughout the years but one fact remains true. AppleCare continues to provide quality healthcare, which is easily accessible, effective, and affordable. AppleCare’s Core Values of Quality, Compassion, Effectiveness, Trust and Teamwork, are embraced and exhibited by every employee in their approach to patient care and interactions with each other. Making your healthcare experience as easy and comfortable as possible is what the staff aims to accomplish for all their patients.

“I believe in the services we provide- Quality Affordable HealthCare. I love working with all of the talented providers we have on staff. I love seeing the smiles on patients’ faces as they leave one of our clinics having received quality care and service.” —Christine Scafuri, Practice Administrator

AppleCare’s commitment to continued exceptional healthcare is what makes them a leading name in urgent healthcare services for South Georgia. They put the patients’ medical needs first, and are willing to do what is appropriate for the best possible outcome for the patient. AppleCare accepts all walk-ins and also takes appointments. The convenient, extended hours make it easy for you to be treated promptly, even on the weekend.

“In healthcare we are all expected to perform at a very high level of providing quality care, which we do. In my opinion the thing that differentiates us from other companies is our people. The AppleCare staff goes out of their way to be friendly, inviting and service oriented. We could not be such a great company without the great staff on the AppleCare team. I love that the entire AppleCare team is so compassionate, engaged and takes pride in providing excellent quality service to all of the people that we serve in each of our communities.” –Chase Finley, President and CEO

Affordable healthcare is something progressively harder to find, but with AppleCare you can rely on consistent care at a reasonable cost. The AppleCare Advantage Program is a membership plan for services received at any AppleCare clinic. This is not an insurance plan, but a program to receive discounted rates and services at AppleCare Immediate Care for those lacking medical coverage.

“AppleCare offers patient care preferable to other primary and immediate care facilities with their convenient locations, short wait times, and effective patient outcomes all at a value that will save you money over an ER visit. We work to provide opportunities for our employees to grow and develop personally and professionally in an environment where they are valued as our most important company resource.” –Gavin Harper, Human Resources Director

AppleCare Immediate Care is fortunate to have so many engaged and enthusiastic employees that make your experience memorable, and your treatment thorough. The staff of AppleCare hopes to always exceed your expectations and provide unmatched care for you and your family.


“My husband and I brought our son to Apple Care on May 31 with an allergic reaction.  Wilson is only 5 years old, and we had no idea what was happening. His face had swollen up to the point that he was unrecognizable! The receptionist was considerate, concerned, and extremely helpful. She immediately got Lorie Lindsay who had us taken back without finishing the paperwork. Everyone involved went above and beyond to figure out the problem and help our son. While this was a scary time for us, I felt at ease with the staff and their ability to treat my son! After giving Wilson medicine to control the reaction, we were asked to stay for observation. Throughout the wait, the staff continued to check on us and love on my son. I am so thankful for Lorie Lindsay, Ashley Ramex, Bridgett Hendrix, and Casey Hall! Thank you ladies for being extraordinary!”
