Urgent care is a type of walk-in clinic providing ambulatory care within a dedicated medical facility outside of a conventional emergency room. Urgent care centers majorly treat illnesses or injuries that need immediate care. However, these types of illnesses are not serious enough and thus do not need an ER visit. Urgent care centers thus allow easy access to an affordable healthcare experience to patients. Nowadays, urgent care centers are equipped with cutting-edge technology and offer life-saving procedures for the fast recovery of patients. In terms of service, the market for urgent care centers is segmented into injury, illness, physical, diagnostic, screening, and vaccination.

In addition, the use of urgent care centers in case of non-emergency conditions is also a prime factor augmenting the growth of the market in North America.
