Meet Our Nurses!

May 6th – May 12th is National Nurses Week, where we honor our compassionate and courageous nurses.
In honor of National Nurses Week 2014, we had a chance to sit down with the nurses of Urgent Care of Connecticut for a “Get to Know You” session. Although they are not directly involved in daily patient care, they each play a large role behind the scenes to ensure that Urgent Care of Connecticut operates smoothly.
Linda Rohatsch, RN, BSN is the Chief Operating Officer for Urgent Care of Connecticut. She works directly with the CEO and CMO to provide leadership and direction to the clinical and administrative staff.
Tracey Cassese, RN, BSN, B-C, LNCC is the Director of Clinical Implementation for Urgent Care of Connecticut. She ensures that new clinics open smoothly and fully equipped with everything needed.
Sabrina Huhn, RN, BSN is the Director of Clinical Education for Urgent Care of Connecticut. She provides education and training to new employees throughout the orientation process.

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."

Somers, NY
