CareNow® recently earned the distinction of Accredited Urgent Care Center from our industry’s association, Urgent Care Association (UCA). Pursuing accreditation was a lengthy yet worthwhile process for our entire organization, from nurses and medical assistants to lab techs and front desk receptionists.
It prompted discussions within our organization and helped us raise the bar to bring our patients the very highest quality of care.
Why this recognition matters
UCA Accreditation recognizes our commitment to delivering the highest quality of care and service to our patients.
CareNow®’s centers provide patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions, and they have met all of the UCA’s established standards and criteria for quality of patient care, safety and scope of services.
CareNow® knows urgent care centers are more important than ever
The healthcare environment is changing, and it is becoming more and more important for patients to understand their treatment options.
Urgent care is a convenient and viable choice for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. CareNow accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.
When a medical condition cannot be handled by a patient’s regular provider — such as unexpected cuts, burns, sprains or fractures that do not require a visit to the emergency department—CareNow®’s urgent care centers are equipped with X-ray capabilities, laboratory services and licensed providers available to perform minor procedures like suturing.
Our CareNow® clinics met UCA's highest standards for accreditation
The standards and criteria set forth by the UCA are of the highest level, and we’re proud to say that we have met or exceeded these standards. This accreditation reflects CareNow’®s deep dedication to patients in the communities it serves.
