Mississippi Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics

Mississippi's health situation is dire, with the United Health Foundation ranking the state in equal last place in overall health. Its diabetes and obesity statistics are also the worst in the country. These chronic conditions put pressure on Mississippi's general practitioners and emergency departments.

New urgent care facilities bridge the gap between these facilities, offering more services than general practitioners and treating patients whose conditions are not serious enough to warrant a hospital visit. Statistics suggest almost 80% of patients who visit the emergency department could have been successfully treated at urgent care centers.

Urgent Care in Mississippi

Mississippi urgent care center physicians can perform minor procedures, drug tests, physical exams, pap smears, X-rays, and attend to a range of other non-life threatening healthcare needs. They look to ease the burden on the state's general practitioners and emergency departments while offering their patients affordable, convenient, and professional healthcare.

Urgent care centers know that accidents happen and illnesses strike outside of traditional business hours, so they open their doors for extended hours. Most of Mississippi's urgent care centers are open for business seven days a week, for 12 hours or more each day. During that time they typically treat 40 of the state's sick or injured residents. These patients know they can visit without any prior planning, as all Mississippi urgent care facilities happily accept walk-ins without the need for appointments. They also accept most forms of health insurance.

Mississippi's urgent care industry is rapidly expanding to meet the demand of the state's many residents suffering low to mid-level illness, injury, and ongoing health complications.
