Steady Growth...is the trend for urgent care centers in the US - based on the results from the 2012 Urgent Care Benchmarking Study. Approximate growth from 2008-2010 was 300 centers per year. In 2011, the growth rate nearly doubled and 80% of urgent care centers reported an increase in patient visits. The study will soon be released by the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA), the industry arm providing leadership, education and resources for its members.
