South Central Urgent Care Receives Certified Urgent Care Designation from the Urgent Care Association of America.

South Central Urgent Care, located at 1430 Jefferson Street in Laurel, has received the Certified Urgent Care designation which distinguishes it as a true urgent care center.  The clinic provides patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention 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 healthcare environment is changing,” states Lindsay Johnson, South Central Urgent Care Clinic Manager. “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.  South Central Urgent Care accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.

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, South Central Urgent Care is equipped with digital x-ray, CLIA certified laboratory services and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures like casting and suturing.

“South Central Urgent Care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, which offers increased convenience and cost savings to patients,” states Johnson.  “With this certification, South Central Urgent Care demonstrates their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.”

South Central Urgent Care, a division of South Central Clinics, is open seven days a week with extended hours for convenient patient care. Under the medical direction of physicians, nurse practitioners and other credentialed medical personnel, South Central Urgent Care is committed to providing quality care to each patient.

South Central Urgent Care is a walk-in facility, located at 1430 Jefferson Street, beside Laurel Family Clinic. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends. Medicaid, Medicare and most commercial insurances are accepted. For more information, please call 601-425-2273 or visit scrmc.com.
