We work to support the local medical community and hospital system to lower costs and increase access to high-quality, cost-effective health care when the patients need it - after hours and on weekends and holidays.  We work closely with local family practice physicians to coordinate that care so that duplicative services are avoided and care is clearly communicated across the medical continuum,” said Jason A. Williams MPAS, Ph.D., President and CEO of the Eastern Region and Founder of FastMed. “As we move into the flu season, we want to keep the residents and employees of Greenville healthy and offer a host of rapid testing in our clinic. These simple tests diagnose a patient and place them on the right medication so they can get better as quickly as possible.
