September 24, 2010 - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Southbury & Brookfield, CT — Urgent Care of Connecticut, located in Brookfield and Southbury, has received the Certified Urgent Care designation which distinguishes it as a true urgent care center. The clinic provides patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and has met all of 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. Urgent Care of Southbury accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.
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, Urgent Care of Connecticut is equipped with x-ray, laboratory services and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures like casting and suturing.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings.
With its certification, Urgent Care of Connecticut and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.
