Why is Licensure and Certification Important?

New England Urgent Care is Licensed and Certified, Making Us a True Urgent Care Center

pic-certified-logoNot all urgent care clinics are the same.

Just because a walk-in clinic calls themselves an “Urgent Care,” it does not mean they are ‘certified’ or ‘licensed’ to do so.

Licensing for urgent cares is now mandatory in Connecticut. As a licensed urgent care,  New England Urgent Care meets and offers these three services required to having a license:

  • On-site X-rays
  • On-site IV fluids
  • On-site resuscitation equipment

Above all this, New England Urgent Care has ER-experienced staff to administer these services.

If the practice has the Urgent Care Association of America Certification like New England Urgent Care does, it means that it has the medical equipment and trained staff to take care of a wider range of illnesses and injuries than clinics who are NOT Certified.

So, as a true Certified Urgent Care, New England Urgent Care has the needed equipment and staff to treat all non-life threatening, urgent illnesses and injuries right away, without an appointment.
