With approximately two new urgent care centers opening nationwide every week, it is clear that growth of the industry is not slowing. Industry growth is fueled from many sectors, including: public demand for more access to urgent care, many underserved communities with regard to urgent care services, hospital systems wishing to facilitate convenient access to their systems, and the entrepreneurial drive of some primary care and emergency physicians.
