Could Working for an Urgent Care Center Be for You?

If working in one of the fastest growing segments in health care is for you, the next time that you drive by your local “walk-in clinic”(urgent care) think of this: almost 90% percent of Urgent Care Centers expected patient visits to increase and had plans for expansion in the coming year, according to Becker’s’ Hospital Review.
The reasons patients are flocking to the local Urgent Care Center instead of the Emergency Room are many. The first reason is an important reason – they are local. Many patients also find the small, more intimate environment less threatening. The Affordable Care Act has also helped drive up visits, making Urgent Care facilities more accessible with insurance. The shorter wait times, less red tape associated with larger medical facilities make Urgent Care Center a no-brainer for today’s patient.
