In addition to industry accolades and recognition, Urgent Care Industry Award winners receive:
The Urgent Care Foundation will honor an individual who is within their first 5 years of their career within Urgent Care and who is seen as having already “made a mark” within their organization or the industry through a proven track record of leadership, innovation, and dedication to community.

Recognizes an individual, organization, or company for their outstanding contributions to the association’s grassroots, state, or federal advocacy efforts. Nominees are not required to be a member of UCA.
The UCA Lifetime Membership Award was established to recognize longstanding members who have continually dedicated much of their professional career to the advancement of the UCA. For decades, these extraordinary members have repeatedly volunteered time and effort serving for the betterment of the Association. The awardee will be granted complimentary lifetime membership to UCA. Nominees must be an active member of UCA.

This Award was established to honor our first “Unsung Hero” Becky Burress, UCA’s very first staff member. Becky passed away suddenly in August 2019, and this Award serves as a permanent honor for all those exceptional team members whose attitude and enthusiasm stand out above the others. This person is a team builder, organizational/industry cheerleader, and the optimist who always finds the good in people and the upside in every situation. These were Becky’s qualities—and we want to recognize other individuals who light up the room and make those they encounter feel the energy. Nominees must be an active member of UCA.
