Color the Grouchies

March 21, 2022

You’ve met the Grouchies. 

They’re annoying little creatures you often run into when you’re seeking urgent care for yourself or someone you love. There’s Squeezix, who’ll pick your pocket with unexpected fees. Skwibble, who’ll confuse you with unintelligible billing codes for procedures you didn’t even know you had. Then there’s Krazzle, the stress monster. He’s fond of anything that brings anxiety in health care, from disinterested staff to overpriced MRIs, CT scans, and X-rays. And finally, there’s Fritter, who shows up when you’re wasting your time in a long line, waiting for the care you need.

The Grouchies are all too common, and they’re difficult to eradicate. But if you think you have to put up with them whenever you need health care, you don’t.

You won’t find them anywhere at Gateway Hancock Health. The reason: Gateway was built to keep the Grouchies away. Conveniently located at I-70 and Mount Comfort Road, Gateway has pleasant doctors, nurses, and associates—all ready to care for you quickly and efficiently. It also has immediate care and affordable lab and imaging services. Gateway even offers upfront estimates and a simple, one-bill-per-visit policy. So the Grouchies hate everything about Gateway. 

Still, it’s a good idea to be able to identify the Grouchies, so you can avoid them wherever you go. To help, we’ve designed a coloring book. Each Grouchie has his own page. Just memorize their identifying characteristics and you’ll be able to spot them if they’re ever in your path again. Remember to color the outline of Gateway, too. Then you’ll know what to look for the next time you need immediate care. You can find the coloring pages here. Just download, print, and get coloring!
