Holyoke Health is now using Everseat to fill open appointments! Everseat is an online scheduling app that can be accessed by established Holyoke Health patients to book appointments with their provider. Holyoke Health began using this online tool to increase access to available appointments for our patients. Everseat finds open appointments at Holyoke Health and posts them on the app for patients to book themselves online or through their smartphone!
Everseat appointments are specifically for follow-up and sick visits, these appointments cannot be used for physicals and new patient appointments. Patients must book appointments with their primary care provider.
From the day we opened on June 14th, we have seen 92 patients, an amazing start for our clinic! We are open 5 days a week, Monday-Friday. Our patients have been very excited to have their eye care needs addressed in Holyoke instead of having to travel to another city. We even removed a foreign body from the eye during our second week! Currently we are able to order MassHealth glasses for our MassHealth patients and have a good selection of frames for them to try on right here in our clinic!
What We Offer:
Complete Eye Exams
Dilated Fundus Exams
Urgent Visits for:
Bump on Eyelid
Sudden vision loss
Sudden Eye Pain
Network - Tufts
Fallon Navicare (EyeMed)
Next Steps for Eye Care: One of our goals for the near future is to build a small optical with affordable eyeglasses for our non-MassHealth patients. We plan to have a moderate selection of affordable and high-end frames for our patients to purchase. We also will start seeing patients for contact lens fitting.
We will continue to broaden our insurance coverage and become a retail optometry site for non HHC patients.
Holyoke Health Center is a proud sponsor of our local Valley Blue Sox baseball team! On Friday, July 22nd the Holyoke Health Center attended the game!

Thank you Valley Blue Sox for having the Holyoke Health Center at your Holyoke Community Night!
