Experience is the difference.
Have you ever gone to a local walk-in clinic only to find out they can’t (or won’t) treat your non-emergency? Do you dread the typical long wait of a hospital Emergency Department visit, especially for a non-life threatening issue? That’s because all immediate medical clinics are NOT the same.
7 Reasons to Choose New England Urgent Care:
- You can trust us because we’ve got the credentials. We are the ONLY licensed urgent care Connecticut with clinics in Bristol, Enfield, Manchester and West Hartford, and the ONLY certified walk-in urgent care in Hartford County with multiple locations
- We’ve got the know-how. We are Connecticut’s ONLY urgent care group with ER-experienced Provider/RN medical teams and one of very few in the U.S. that can provide that level of medical care
- You won’t get sent to the ER for most non-emergencies. Unlike many others who merely send you the to ER, we treat more non-emergency illnesses and injuries than most other walk-ins
- We treat ALL age groups, including the very young and the very old
- Experience matters. New England Urgent Care was founded and is directed by a board-certified, Emergency Medicine Physician and Emergency Medicine Nurse
- We are there when you need us. We are open every day and the latest on weekends
- Really need the ER? We can direct admit. We are the ONLY urgent care that can direct admit patients to many area hospitals, if required, bypassing the ER altogether in certain situations
