When your urgent care earns certification through UCA, you join the endorsed ranks of more than 1,800 centers strong.
- 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 minimal expectations to define a qualified urgent care center.
- This designation tells the public and payers that the urgent care center's scope of practice is consistent with a set of UCA criteria defining easy access and services that allow for care of 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 kinds of providers.
