An estimated three million patients visit an urgent care center each week in the U.S. Some of the conditions most often treated at urgent care centers include: sprains and strains, fractures, upper respiratory illnesses, gastrointestinal conditions such as food poisoning, lacerations, and concussions. The urgent care movement began in the 1970s in the United States, but has grown exponentially around the globe since then. Almost two-thirds of centers employ a mix of physicians, nurse practitioners or physician assistants, and 65% of centers have at least one physician on-site at all times.
