Urgent Care:
A Better Value for Your Family

Urgent Care presents Better Value than the ER – emergency room costs are higher than the cost for the same level of quality care received at an urgent care center.

Urgent Care Saves Time – emergency room triages emergency conditions to the top of the list of patients needed to be seen. Hence, if one requires medical attention at the ER and the issue is not life-threatening, it could take three hours or longer before one is seen by a doctor. At NOUC, our door to door time is less than one hour.

Urgent Care means Lower Co-Payments – many insurance companies categorize urgent care facilities as primary care facilities. It means that patient co-payments may be substantially lower than the ones for the ER.

Urgent Care doesn’t charge a Facility Fee – North Olmsted Urgent Care doesn’t bill your insurance company a physician service fee and a facility fee. The lower the fee, the lower out of pocket expenses incurred by the patient.

Meet Our Staff

Our Urgent Care Centers are staffed by a focused team of professionals whose main goal is to provide the best patient care and follow up possible. This means we go the extra mile to address our patient’s needs, work with their insurance providers to provide the right paperwork and do all this in a prompt and friendly manner.
