Priority Care, an urgent and primary care facility with locations in Canton and Halethorpe, has opened a new location signed within Park Plaza, a 186,000 square foot neighborhood shopping center located in the Severna Park section of Anne Arundel County. The center is owned and managed by Continental Realty Corporation.

Priority Care offers medical services including injury treatment, wound care, x-ray services, laboratory and blood services, as well as treatment for sports-related injuries and allergic reactions. The center is also suitable for physicals, occupational medicine, and primary care treatments.
“We were immediately drawn to the high traffic counts on Ritchie Highway, as well as our location within the center that provides excellent visibility from this major roadway,” explained Bill Link, Operations Director for Priority Care. “Medicine has changed. Priority Care has also changed with the times. We differentiate ourselves from the competition by providing the highest level of service,performed by a staff of medical providers with emergency room experience. We also have an orthopedic doctor and eight examination rooms. There is usually little to no wait time.”

We are extremely impressed with this concept and the operators and believe this use adds significant value to Park Plaza.”
