If you have an Amazon Alexa device, now you can ask her to find the closest Novant Health location near you. She will provide current wait times for urgent care and hospital emergency rooms.

Ask Alexa to search by facility name, clinic type, such as urgent care or express care, by zip code, or mileage. She can tell you about various services offered at clinic locations, whether or not they accept walk-ins, offer flu shots, x-rays, and more.

All you have to do is download the app onto your cell phone and login. Alexa will send you a map of the nearest Novant Health location or of the location you select, as well as other data about that location. 

You can begin by saying, "Alexa, ask Novant Health" or "Alexa, ask Novant Health to find the nearest location." Then follow the prompts that Alexa will give you from there.
