According to the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine, there are approximately 9,300 walk-in, stand-alone urgent care centers in the United States, and 700-800 new clinics open every year.

As urgent care centers continue to proliferate, providing an attractive alternative to more costly venues of care for acute illness and injury, and a fast, convenient modality for primary care, increased knowledge of state regulations will be imperative to the centers’ economic growth and stability.

This webinar addresses the key business and legal considerations in states’ approaches to the formation, operation and growth of urgent care centers.
