How does a practice differentiate itself - make it attractive to a hospital system - and become affiliated with them?
Hospital systems and provider organizations have taken notice of the 8,000+ urgent care clinics in the United States. Many have created partnerships and affiliate relationships to fill a critical gap in their healthcare ecosystems, demonstrating a unique and distinct predisposition to buy versus build.

When physicians sketch their vision of running an urgent care clinic, they may think that having a crowded waiting room would be a “good problem to have.” But when that reality hits – and the crowded waiting room gets even more crowded, it is imperative to have a surge plan in place, so that patients, physicians and staff know how to recognize a surge situation, and know what to do to avoid negatively impacting patient care or clinicians themselves. Surge goes beyond simple supply-and-demand; it is a serious and complex phenomenon. While it is most often associated with Emergency Departments, surge can happen in urgent care environments as well.

It’s imperative to think beyond the medical opportunity. While starting an urgent care center gives the practicing physician a chance to provide care in a specialized setting, and fill a gap in the market – it’s also important to fully understand the economics of this major undertaking. Just as any retail operator knows, branding, location, staffing and the portfolio of products and services offered must add up to a successful formula in order to meet customer needs.
The time-honored traditions of summer – vacations, backyard barbecues, pool parties, visits to the beach and lots of time outside – can easily lead to unforeseen medical situations, many serious enough to require urgent attention.
