Advising the Urgent Care Client
The proliferation of urgent care centers (UCCs) across the country has created strong demand for tailored legal advice and guidance for the industry. UCCs are facilities that serve patients with non-life-threatening conditions (i.e. flu symptoms, cuts and sprains, and minor burns) on a retail basis. Historically, the industry has been dominated by private equity investors; however, other market participants, including health systems, physician groups and health insurance companies have demonstrated increased activity in this growing market. These strong future growth patterns in the urgent care industry should continue to pose legal and other issues that potential investors, operators and investors should be aware.
