South Central Urgent Care: Quality Care Available 7 Days a Week

Posted on September 23, 2019

South Central Urgent Care is a certified urgent care center that offers healthcare services for patients, ages 6 months and up. 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.

“The healthcare environment is changing,” states Chad Caraway, FNP, South Central Urgent Care Nurse Practitioner. “It is becoming more and more important for patients to understand their treatment options.”

South Central Urgent Care provides treatment for ailments such as sore throats, ear aches, coughs and colds, nebulizer treatment, sport injuries, sprains and strains, possible broken bones or simple fractures, flus and fevers, eye infection, vomiting and diarrhea.

“South Central Urgent Care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, which offers increased convenience and cost savings to patients,” states Caraway.  “By being a certified urgent care facility, South Central Urgent Care demonstrates their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care.”
