UCCs offer services on a walk-in, no appointment basis for non-life threatening illnesses and injuries. The majority of UCCs also provide services in occupational medicine, vaccinations, diagnostic, screening and monitoring and school physicals. Over the last two decades, the number of UCCs has been increasing all over the U.S., and the number continues to grow. Presently, more than 9,000 urgent care centers are operational in the United States alone.

The UCCs market is a diverse playing field where pioneering leaders have built urgent care models to address the extensive demand for cost-efficient and convenient health care. The UCCs have seen significant growth over the last decade due to longer waiting times for appointments with emergency departments (EDs) and primary care providers, difficulty in same-day access for sick care and limited access to after-hours care at hospitals and other health care providers. Majority of the UCCs operate seven days a week, and remain open from 9:00 am to 7:00 pm or later on weeknights. A physician, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant usually attends patients within 15 to 45 minutes on arrival in comparison to approximately four-hour average ED visit time. The UCCs market is expected to witness more transactions and consolidations in the next three to four years. One of the important factors driving the market is the constantly increasing insured population. Expanding health insurance coverage in the U.S. is expected to increase the demand for urgent care services. Patients with private coverage are more likely to seek medical treatment at an urgent care center than at an ED or other hospital settings. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (2010) have added coverage for a new group of approximately 32 million individuals in 2014. The changes brought by the Affordable Care Act would be pivotal to UCCs becoming a standard for convenient and affordable public health care. According to industry experts, the new act would influence the Urgent Care Centers Market significantly by penetrating into the sub-urban areas.
The urgent care industry would continue to be a forcing house of deals over the next five years, as different financial and strategic partners race to institute a strong geographical presence and larger market share. With the current trend, UCCs would quickly replace primary care physicians and emergency rooms across the U.S. Consequently, dozens of private equity firms have already put capital to work in UCCs across the country to exploit the high profit margin health care market. The market has already seen huge capital investments from leading equity firms in the past few years.
However, physician access is expected to worsen in the next few years and could affect the growth of the UCCs market. The American Association of Medical Colleges stated that up to one third of the physician population would retire in the next decade, which is expected to have a restraining effect on the growth of the overall UCCs market.
