Help us fight for you. Become a UCAdvocate.

As Urgent Care has become a major player in the delivery of healthcare, we’ve recognized the need to ensure that we are always included in national, state and local planning that affects us — and that means Advocacy.

We have lots of work to do in 2024!  Investing as a UCAdvocate supports the constant effort and lobbying required to make national-level change. 

View our strategies for 2024-2025.
