UCA’s Certified Urgent Care (CUC) program recognizes Urgent Care centers that meet nationally standardized criteria to demonstrate their commitment to meet the scope of service of a qualified Urgent Care center.
This designation tells the public and payers that the Urgent Care center’s scope of service is consistent with criteria defining easy access and services that treat a broad spectrum of illness, injury, and disease.
Urgent Care centers with the CUC designation have a mark of distinction to educate their community and stakeholders, gain an edge in marketing their level of services, and eliminate confusion with other specialties.
