UCR Health Centers Opens Mesa Urgent Care Despite Economic Downturn

UCR Health Centers opens a new urgent care facility in Mesa, Arizona despite the economic recession. The company feels that in an era of healthcare crisis, uninsured and escalating cost, additional market share to serve populations who would otherwise go to an emergency room is a strategic move. UCR Health Centers offers same day, urgent care medical treatment at a cost-effective alternative, and also integrates multiple medical services into their business model.

Mesa, AZ, December 15, 2009 --(PR.com)-- UCR Health Centers, an integrated urgent care medical clinic has opened its third facility located in Mesa, Arizona on November 11, 2009. Despite the economic recession, UCR Urgent Care feels that it is an ideal time to offer low cost, accessible medical services to the public, especially during this time of healthcare crisis and escalating cost. Urgent care services are an ideal alternative to patients who would otherwise visit the emergency room for minor but urgent problems, such as uncomplicated cuts, flu, colds, bronchitis, or pneumonias.

“Those of us in the healthcare profession have seen this crisis coming for a long time,” says Natasha Deonarain, MD, President and CEO of UCR Health Centers. “Now, when the cost of healthcare for both the uninsured and the insured population is becoming unaffordable, urgent care is a perfect solution.”

Although patient census has dropped recently in most emergency rooms and outpatient clinics, UCR Health Centers feels this contraction offers ideal opportunities to capture additional market share. Located in a multi-disciplinary medical building on the northeast corner of Stapley and Southern roads in Mesa, UCR Health Centers has joined a radiology group and a private Internal Medicine practice to offer the public convenient, same day services.

“By locating our urgent care facility in the same building as an imaging center which can offer CT scanning and MRI in addition to x-ray, we are able to offer a greater range of medical services,” says Daryn Krywko, CFO of UCR Health Centers. “This means patients will not have to drive outside the building in order to obtain additional diagnostic tests. It’s essentially a win for the patient and the doctor.”

UCR Health Centers is a walk-in, no appointment necessary facility that has been approved by the Department of Health Services in Arizona. The first urgent care medical clinic was started in 2005 in Chandler and has a second location in Prescott, Arizona. The business model includes integration with occupational medicine, worker’s compensation, chiropractic, rehabilitation and massage therapy as well as alternative treatments such as acupuncture. For patient convenience, registration forms and more information are available on the company’s web-site and will speed up patient’s visits.
