New research shows Americans are increasingly turning to the emergency room alternatives.

URGENT CARE CENTERS have grown in popularity in recent years. With their convenient hours and ability to quickly treat acute conditions ranging from infections to fractures, these health care settings have become a common sight in many parts of the country. According to the Urgent Care Association of America, the number of urgent care centers in the U.S. grew by 5 percent in one year, from 7,271 in 2016 to 7,639 as of June 2017.
