Righttime Medical Care presented a $5,000 check on Thursday, Nov. 17, to students of South River High School’s Power Hawks Robotics Club in Edgewater, Md.

With eight Care Centers in Maryland, including four in Anne Arundel County, Righttime Medical Care contributed to the robotics team to help pay for students’ travel to competitions, community outreach projects and equipment purchases.

“We are committed to supporting this wonderful group of students who are our future leaders in the areas of science, technology and engineering,” said Righttime’s CEO and Chief Pediatrician Robert G. Graw, Jr., M.D.

Each year, Power Hawks team members design and build a robot to compete locally and nationally in robotics competitions and challenges. By participating, students improve science, technology, engineering, and math skills, learn cooperative problem solving, and develop self-confidence, communication skills, and leadership.

A trusted name in urgent medical care for more than twenty years, Righttime Medical Care provides medical care to children and adults for illnesses and injuries daily from 9am until midnight, 365 days a year. Righttime’s board-certified, award-winning physicians, physicians assistants and nurse practitioners treat patients of all ages with warmth and compassion. Most insurance plans are accepted, and insurance carriers have welcomed the service as a cost-efficient alternative to the emergency room or when a patient’s primary care physician is unavailable.

While walk-in patients are always welcome, Righttime accepts same-day appointments through its Call Center at 888-808-6483, which opens daily at 7:30am. Care Centers are located in Annapolis, Arundel Mills, Columbia, Crofton, Gaithersburg, Gambrills, Pasadena and Rockville, with its newest center opening in Olney in December. Future Righttime Care Centers are planned next year in other Maryland communities and in Virginia.
