Virtua Express receives certified urgent care designation
Virtua Express Urgent Care, located in Moorestown and Washington Township, has received the Certified Urgent Care designation which distinguishes it for excellence in urgent care services. The centers offer patients walk-in, extended-hour medical attention provided by physicians and other licensed clinicians. Virtua Express Urgent Care treats 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 and more important for patients to understand their treatment options. With its certification, Virtua Express Urgent Care and the Urgent Care Association of America demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to appropriate levels of care. In addition to its Moorestown and Washington Township locations, Virtua Express is coming soon to Voorhees.
Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. Virtua Express 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, Virtua Express is equipped with x-ray, laboratory services and a licensed provider is always available to perform minor procedures like splinting and suturing.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings.
