Urgent Care Center Accreditation

What is Urgent Care Accreditation?

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. Accreditation is a symbol that an organization is committed to providing high-quality care.

Why is Accreditation Important?

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 NUCCA 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.

What are the Benefits of Accreditation?

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.

Why Choose Urgent Care Center Accreditation?

The NUCCA program was designed by Urgent Care physicians for Urgent Care physicians. The NUCCA Accreditation process is ideally suited for the Urgent Care center. Why choose the NUCCA program? It saves time and money. The NUCCA program is economically sensitive to the Urgent Care practitioner while keeping your busy schedule in mind.
