PHMG Urgent Care receives Certified Urgent Care Designation
PeaceHealth Medical Group (PHMG) Urgent Care, with locations in Eugene and Springfield, Ore., is the only urgent care provider in our area to receive 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 health care environment is changing, and it is becoming 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. PHMG 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, PHMG Urgent Care is equipped with x-ray and laboratory services, and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures such as casting and suturing.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings.
Certification by the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrates PHMG Urgent Care’s commitment to provide patients with access to appropriate levels of care in accordance with nationally recognized criteria.
