Practice Velocity congratulates our client Emergency One Urgent Care and Occupational Health Center on receiving accreditation from the Urgent Care Association of America.
As reported by the Hudson Valley News Network:
Emergency One, located in Kingston, Hyde Park and New Windsor, NY, has received the Accredited Urgent Care designation, the highest level of distinction for urgent care centers. Emergency One’s centers provide patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and have met all of the Urgent Care Association of America’s established standards and criteria for quality of patient care, safety, and scope of services.
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. Emergency One 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, Emergency One’s urgent care centers are equipped with x-ray, laboratory services and licensed providers are 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 accreditation, Emergency One and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to quality care of the highest level.
