Many patients immediately think to go to the emergency room at the nearest hospital once an accident happens. However, most patients then remember that many emergency rooms at hospitals are more like waiting rooms, and only get medical attention after several hours of sitting in the front.
Recognizing a business opportunity, many physicians and healthcare organizations have opened urgent care facilities to alleviate patients’ wait time at hospitals. However, recently this trend has grown so much that in many areas urgent care practices are just as prevalent as drug stores.
Increased competition from other urgent care practices as well as hospitals expanding their emergency departments to decrease wait times, is significantly reducing the number of patients seen by most urgent care offices.
