Staff

Daily operations are managed by a Chief Executive Officer, a staff comprising full- and part-time professionals, and two urgent care industry consultants.

UCA recently restructured our team, due to impacts of the coronavirus pandemic.  We were sad to have to say goodbye to several of our valued colleagues, and appreciate your patience as we work through this transition into a new UCA.  If you do not know who to call for your question, please call our main number 877-698-2262 and we can help you.
