Urgent Care Awareness Month was established to celebrate the growth of the urgent care industry.
Each May, CareNow® urgent care centers across the nation spotlight the various disciplines within its urgent care family and the role the centers play in the lives of millions of Americans by celebrating physicians, providers, clinicians and team members who work together to deliver exceptional urgent care.
All CareNow® urgent care centers have achieved accreditation through the Urgent Care Association (UCA), recognizing the commitment to delivering the highest quality of care and service to patients. In observance of Urgent Care Awareness Month, we remind families that CareNow® offers:
Diagnosis and treatment for:
- Colds, flu, strep and more
- Minor strains, sprains, cuts, burns and fractures
- Immunizations, including flu shots
- Sports physicals
Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. CareNow® accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients seven days a week with extended hours. Patients can also choose Web Check-In® and skip the line by waiting at home.
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, laboratory services and licensed providers are always available to perform minor procedures like suturing.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms offering increased convenience.
