New Hampshire Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics
The quaint New England state of New Hampshire is small, but it packs a big punch in terms of healthcare. Known for its tourism and its heavily wooded areas, these are the very things that cause trouble when it comes to accessing and affording adequate healthcare. They're also two of the reasons urgent care facilities are paramount.
Healthcare in New Hampshire
New Hampshire winters are cold and filled with snow. Older residents suffer from cardiac related problems while trying to keep warm or shovel snow, while the state's many hunters suffer everything from accidents to incidents of hypothermia in the cold. Summertime poses even more unique problems. The woods lead to issues with ticks and Lyme disease, mosquitoes and meningitis, and concerns ranging from heat rash to heat stroke. Beach side, varying degrees of sunburn are commonplace, especially among tourists, but those same visitors also risk getting stung by jellyfish, suffering cramps in the water, and countless other accidents.
Urgent Care in New Hampshire
New Hampshire relies on urgent care clinics, partly because of all its visitors. Tourists can't always get to a hospital, nor do they make plans to do so. Residents themselves depend on tourist dollars, and in the off-seasons they can't always afford expensive visits to the emergency room, or even focus on adequate primary care. As a result, they rely on the urgent care centers in large cities like Concord and Manchester.
Walk-In Clinics in New Hampshire
Being dependent on summer tourists, residents can't always take advantage of health systems such as Elliot, Garnet, and Granite. Because the cost of healthcare is greater than economic growth, many natives depend on walk-in clinics where the prices are much more affordable.
