We’re thrilled to announce that HCA Healthcare’s CareNow® urgent care centers recently achieved accreditation through the Urgent Care Association (UCA) for the second time since 2019.
This honor is the highest distinction an urgent care center can receive and highlights our dedication to quality care for our patients and the communities we serve.
What is the Urgent Care Association Accreditation?
UCA sets national industry standards for patient safety and quality measures for clinics, with only 20% of urgent care centers nationwide receiving the accreditation
Through a comprehensive organizational assessment that includes on-site visits with UCA accreditation surveyors, the association can determine which urgent care clinics meet the standard for excellence in care, quality, and patient safety.
HCA Healthcare’s urgent care physicians and colleagues are committed to providing convenient, quality, patient-centered care. This accreditation represents our continued commitment to raising the bar for quality across the urgent care industry.
Why Urgent Care Clinics have become so important
With more adults now working from home and patient safety a greater concern than ever, patients are seeking convenient medical care that works for them. Urgent care is an ideal option for those who can’t make it to a primary care physician during work hours or those who prefer to wait from a socially distanced location like home.
At CareNow®, we have more than 175 locations throughout the country — each open after hours and on the weekends. For those who need the ultimate flexibility, CareNow® also accepts unscheduled walk-in patients any time we’re open.
Every clinic is equipped with X-ray capabilities, laboratory services for bloodwork testing, and qualified physicians who can perform minor medical procedures such as stitches so you can get the care you need when you need it.
Get only the best care with CareNow
We’re so proud of each of our clinics for meeting and exceeding the highest level of standards and criteria set forth by the UCA. Our mission is to deliver quality, convenient, patient-centered urgent care with unparalleled service — and this recognition proves we’re accomplishing just that.
