Why is Certification Important?

New England Urgent Care is a Certified Urgent Care, 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’ to do so.

Right now, there is no law in Connecticut that says who can — or cannot — call themselves an “Urgent Care.” However, 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.
