12 Days of Good Things

We, the staff of UCA, present you, our urgent care family, with 12 Days of Good Things.  

Whether it’s something you can use now or later, just know that we know the kind of year you have had and that you deserve all this and MORE. 

Each day, we'll present you with a new Good Thing, but don’t worry, if you miss a day, this page (link to web page) will be updated as each Good Thing is “unwrapped”.  

Every day that you keep choosing to go into work, don and doff your PPE, and keep each other's spirits up is a gift to your communities and to urgent care as a whole, so we hope these Good Things are a gift back to you.  

Thank you for being our #urgentcareheroes and for being part of the UCA family.
