May is Urgent Care Awareness Month
May is Urgent Care Awareness Month, and Excel Urgent Care wants the community to understand the role urgent care plays in our nation’s – and world’s – healthcare system: It bridges the gap between primary care and emergency care. Urgent care centers are the places to go for convenient and efficient medical care for urgent, but not emergency, situations. Treating minor burns, scrapes and cuts is a vital, yet singular piece of the urgent care puzzle. Urgent care also treats conditions such as allergic reactions, ear infections and strep throat; provides X-ray imaging and lab services such as testing for COVID-19, STI’s, pregnancy and blood glucose; provides support and treatment for mental health concerns; and provides preventative services in the way of physicals and vaccinations.
