Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/08/2014 -- Urgent care centers provide immediate medications to patients with injuries or illness on an unscheduled, walk-in basis, thereby avoiding visits to emergency care centers. These centers also offer other services such as occupational medicine, school and sports physicals and travel medicine. The common conditions addressed by urgent care centers include fever, sprains and strains, back pain, and upper respiratory infections. “The Certified Urgent Care Center Designation” incorporates the criteria for establishment of urgent care centers laid down by the Urgent Care Association of America. These criteria define the hours of operation, scope of service and the staffing requirements. It also states that the center must be capable of addressing broad spectrum of illnesses and should have diagnostic services that are on-site. The costs of treatment at these centers are less as compared to that at emergency rooms. These centers are usually located outside the main hospital campuses and are independently owned by physicians or groups of physicians.
