Urgent Care Historical Trend
Since the 1970’s, urgent care centers have delivered ambulatory care to patients. Urgent care centers typically treat patients who have an injury or illness that requires immediate care – but that is not serious enough for an Emergency Department. Many centers have been started by Emergency Physicians who have responded to the public need for convenient, efficient, and quality access to unscheduled medical care. Urgent care centers have been far less common in many states except for example, Florida and California. This due to in part the primary care physician referral required for many patients to get treatment.
