LaGrangeville, NY – May 21, 2012- Health Quest Immediate Care Center (Health Quicc) has received accreditation as a Certified Urgent Care Center by the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA). This award distinguishes it among other urgent care centers in the region. The immediate care center provides patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and has met all of the UCAOA’s established criteria.
Health Quest Immediate Care Center, with two locations in LaGrange and Wappingers Falls, is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. Health Quicc accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.
When a medical condition cannot be handled by a patient’s regular doctor – such as unexpected cuts, burns, sprains or fractures that do not require a visit to the emergency department, Health Quicc is equipped with x-ray, laboratory services and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures like suturing and vaccinations.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings.
With its certification, Health Quicc and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.
