Many people that hear about us for the first time are a bit confused about who we are and exactly what we do. Here is the basic definition from Wikipedia –
Urgent care is a category of walk-in clinic focused on the delivery of ambulatory care in a dedicated medical facility outside of a traditional emergency room. Urgent care centers primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care, but not serious enough to require an ER visit. Urgent care centers are distinguished from similar ambulatory healthcare centers such as emergency departments and convenient care clinics by their scope of conditions treated and available facilities on-site. While urgent care centers are usually not open 24-hours a day, 70% of centers in the United States open by 8:00 am or earlier and 95% close after 7:00 pm.
The Urgent Care Association of America has a great section on their website dedicated to FAQ (frequently asked questions) on the subject of Urgent Care – http://www.ucaoa.org/faq.php
