Already the most trusted name in walk-in treatment for non-emergency, medical conditions in Harker Heights and Killeen, TX, Freedom Urgent Care has announced it has again earned accredited status from the Urgent Care Association of American (UCAOA). The designation is the highest level of distinction for quality of patient care in an urgent care setting.
CEO, Steve Sellars says, “I couldn’t be more proud of the clinicians and leadership at all levels for reaffirming Freedom Urgent Care commitment to delivering the best care possible.” Sellars goes on to call UCAOA accreditation “the urgent care industry’s ‘mark of excellence’ which should be a source of tremendous pride for every member of the Freedom Urgent Care team.”
To be re-accredited, the UCAOA requires urgent care operators to allow independent surveyors access to randomly selected centers every 3 years. Inspections are rigorous to ensure quality, safety and compliance protocols meet or exceed standards necessary to ensure the highest level of patient care. The scope of urgent care services offered, the physical condition of facilities, and adherence to laws related to patient privacy are also areas subjected to evaluation.
With its re-accreditation, Freedom Urgent Care stands with the Urgent Care Association of America (UCAOA), demonstrating their commitment toward providing patients with access to the highest level of quality care.
UCAOA’s Accreditation Program is voluntary and the only program developed by urgent care professionals, specifically for urgent care.
With locations in Harker Heights and Killeen, Freedom Urgent Care centers are modern, state-of-the art facilities providing walk-in care for minor illnesses and injuries seven days a week, including holidays. Licensed providers are available to perform minor procedures like suturing, in addition to being equipped with digital x-ray, laboratory services and an electronic medical records (EMR) system. Occupational Health services are also available for treatment of workplace injuries, DOT/Non-DOT Physicals, Return-to-Work Exams and Drug testing.
