Urgent Care Association of America launches for Urgent Care Awareness Month

“Whether you’re at work, on vacation or just need an urgent care center close to home, can get you started on the road to better health.”

It has never been easier for patients to find a convenient urgent care center near them, as the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA) announces a new, easy-to-remember center directory URL:

During National Urgent Care Awareness Month this May, UCAOA is reminding patients across the country about the high-quality, convenient care and affordability offered at urgent care centers. Urgent care centers are great options for immediate medical situations that are not life- or limb-threatening, such as sprains, broken bones, flu, colds and other common illness – and now information about convenient center locations is just a click away.

“If you or a family member are suffering with a spring sinus infection, a weekend warrior sprain or even a split lip, our updated and revised site makes it easy to find the closest, most convenient urgent care center,” said P. Joanne Ray, Chief Executive Officer of UCAOA. “Whether you’re at work, on vacation or just need an urgent care center close to home, can get you started on the road to better health.”

With more than 6,400 urgent care centers nationwide and new centers opening every week in convenient locations, UCAOA’s up-to-date center finder helps you navigate with ease. Simply enter basic information like state, zip code or city, and the finder automatically provides the names, addresses and distances of nearby urgent care centers and indicates whether the center is certified, accredited and/or a member of the UCAOA.

“Urgent care centers are there when you need them. Consider this: it’s 4:30pm and you can’t get in to see your primary care physician for days or weeks, or you are away from home on vacation or at your child’s sporting event. UCAOA makes it easy for patients to find a local urgent care center for walk-in, convenient, affordable, high-quality treatment during the evenings and weekends,” said Ray. “We encourage those who can benefit from an urgent care visit to go to, where they can find the best location for their needs.”
