Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an Urgent Care Center is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized standards. The accreditation certificate is a symbol to others that an organization is committed to providing high-quality care. The Urgent Care Center Accreditation (UCCA) Program accomplishes the accreditation of urgent care centers by setting standards, measuring performance, and providing consultation and education where needed. Accreditation is ultimately awarded to those urgent care centers that are found to be in compliance with Urgent Care Center Accreditation Program standards.
Urgent care organizations will value accreditation as a measure of professional achievement and quality of care. Urgent Care Centers should welcome the survey as a constructive learning experience. The UCCA certificate of accreditation is a benchmark of quality, not only to those involved in the health care industry but to the general public as well.
Accreditation enhances the appeal of an Urgent Care Center to payors and employers, and attracts the best providers who are eager to practice at a superior Urgent Care Center.
Previous or existing accreditation by another accrediting agency is not required to earn Accreditation through the Urgent Care Center Accreditation program.
