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 caregivers and staff on the frontlines deserve recognition for their unwavering response to COVID-19 and commitment to keeping patients safe and healthy while delivering the highest quality of care and service. In observance of Urgent Care Awareness Month, we remind families that CareNow offers more ways than ever before to get the care that they need:
- In-clinic visits. Our facilities are taking enhanced safety precautions to ensure patient safety.
- Virtual Care. Check-in online and our team will send a link to set up a virtual visit in a few easy steps.
- Web chat. Use our free screening tool to assess risk and receive the most appropriate care recommendations based on your symptoms.
Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. 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 doctor – 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.
