KIDSSTREET URGENT CARE RECEIVES CERTIFIED URGENT CARE DESIGNATION
FROM THE URGENT CARE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 21, 2018 (Birmingham, Alabama) – KidsStreet Urgent Care, located in Hoover has received the Certified Urgent Care designation which distinguishes it as a true urgent care center. Certified Urgent Care indicates that KidsStreet Urgent Care has an operating model consistent with consumer expectations for urgent care. The Urgent Care Association of America has established the Certified Urgent Care (CUC) to identify urgent care facilities whose operating model is consistent with standard expectations for urgent care.
This clinic provides patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and has met all the Urgent Care Association of America’s established criteria.
The health care environment is changing, and it is becoming more and more important for patients to understand their treatment options. Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. KidsStreet Urgent Care accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings. 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, KidsStreet Urgent Care is equipped with x-ray, laboratory services, and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures like casting and suturing.
With its certification, KidsStreet Urgent Care and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.
KidsStreet Urgent Care is Alabama’s only urgent care dedicated to KIDS!
