We’re proud to announce that Westmed Medical Group has achieved the Accredited Urgent Care designation, the highest level of distinction for urgent care centers. It has met all of the Urgent Care Association of America’s established standards and criteria for quality of patient care, safety and scope of services.
Westmed’s six Urgent Care Centers, located in White Plains, Rye, New Rochelle, Ridge Hill in Yonkers and the Boyce Thompson Center in Yonkers in Westchester County, and in Greenwich in Fairfield County–provide patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions.
“Westmed Urgent Care providers must have a broad and comprehensive body of medical knowledge because they are treating patients with the gamut of acute medical complaints,” said Dr. Jason Moshe Shuker, associate medical director for Urgent Care and Pediatrics.
Urgent care offers convenience and a viable option for patients who cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. Westmed accepts walk-in patients from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. No appointment is needed.
Westmed’s Urgent Care team treats patients with ailments such as sore throats, upper respiratory infections, sprains, strains, minor cuts, neck pain, back pain and even simple fractures requiring splints. Westmed’s Urgent Care Centers are equipped with X-ray, laboratory services, and licensed providers are always available.
Of the approximately 9,000 urgent care centers in the U.S., only a small percentage achieves accreditation. With its accredited status from the Urgent Care Association of America, Westmed demonstrates its commitment toward providing patients with access to quality care of the highest level.
