Many health systems have added urgent care (UC) to their portfolio of services. In most cases, the UC service line is not afforded the same investment of resources as other hospital service lines because it is not seen as a core business. By partnering with the system’s marketing team, the UC service line can benefit from the health system’s brand in many ways if you are creative. This session will discuss how to leverage the health system for the benefit of urgent care.
