Righttime Medical Care receives Certified Urgent Care Designation from the Urgent Care Association of America

October 24, 2012

ANNAPOLIS, Md., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Righttime Medical Care, an urgent care company with nine Maryland locations, has received the Certified Urgent Care designation which distinguishes it among a small group of top urgent care centers nationwide. Righttime provides patients with extended-hour medical services, by appointment and walk-in, with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and has met all of the Urgent Care Association of America’s established criteria.

The health care environment is changing and it is becoming more and more important for patients to understand their treatment options. Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. Righttime Medical Care accepts both scheduled and unscheduled patients during all hours of operation, 365 days a year until midnight.

When a medical condition cannot be handled by a patient’s regular doctor – such as unexpected cuts, burns, sprains or fractures that do not require a visit to the emergency department, Righttime Medical Care is equipped with x-ray and laboratory services and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures.

Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and significant cost savings.

With its certification, Righttime Medical Care and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.
