What is an urgent care center?
An Urgent Care Center is a medical facility that treats patients on a walk-in basis for a wide variety of non-life or limb threatening illnesses, injuries, and minor emergencies. Typically these facilities operate 7 days a week and provide after hours care. Most have the ability to perform basic diagnostic studies, such as x-ray, labs and, EKGs. Many urgent care centers are expanding their scopes of practice to help meet the demands of industry and a growing patient population.
