What are the Benefits to Accreditation?
UCA Accreditation demonstrates a commitment to provide the scope of care consistent with an urgent care center or clinic that meets the criteria of the UCA certified center, including x-ray and laboratory services, as well as a quality and safety commitment to your patients and your employees. It represents the only endeavor in the industry that will provide the applicant dual Accreditation and Certification.
Through this process you are making a commitment of:
- Both financial and human resources
- A willingness to conduct a comprehensive organizational assessment that examines your center’s capacity in Governance, Human Resources, Patient Care Processes, Physical Environment, Quality Improvement, Health Record Management and Patient Privacy/Rights/Responsibilities.
