Advantages of Urgent Care Centers
The UCCs market has different ownerships, where one or more physicians and hospitals/franchise owners come together to address the demand for inexpensive and convenient healthcare. UCCs have witnessed significant developments in the past few years due to longer waiting hours for appointment in emergency room and other healthcare providers, issues with same-day access for sick care, and limited access to after-hours care at hospitals and other primary care providers. A large number of the UCCs work all the days of the week, and remain open from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm or later on weeknights. A qualified professional, such as doctor, nurse, or physician assistant, attends the patient within less than 30 minutes from arrival in comparison to approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes on average ED visit time.
Walk-ins are welcome, and there is no need to plan an appointment. However, appointments can get a patient in and out more rapidly. Appointments can be made through online portal, which also publishes wait time in clinic.
