Urgent Care News

10 June, 2015

According to the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine (AACUM), the number of urgent care facilities has increased 14% to 9,300 centers since 2008.

The economics support this trend. The Urgent Care Association of America (UCAA, 2013 benchmark survey) showed that 83% of urgent care centers experienced growth, and approximately 88% of practices expanded an existing location or added a new location in 2014.

Any exploration of starting an urgent care center should begin with these considerations.
