Just what is the cost of starting an urgent care center? See how the numbers add up…
Dr. Lawrence Earl, a leading expert on urgent care management and a highly regarded mentor in this fast-growing field, has gathered some facts and figures to help guide physicians who are considering opening an urgent care center. 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.
