UCA is led by a strong group of innovative, creative, persistent and motivated people who only want to bring the best in urgent care education, resources and industry news to you when you need it most.
UCA is is governed by a Board of Directors. A new class of Directors is elected annually via an online process that culminates at the UCA National Urgent Care Convention. Each Director serves a three-year term, and can serve up to two consecutive terms. Board Officers are elected by the Directors.
Immediate Past President
The UCA Board President is a volunteer role which requires an extraordinary amount of work and dedication to the Association. We are grateful to these Past Presidents for their wisdom, leadership, and the impact they have had on the Association and the urgent care industry at large.
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.
