06 Mar Urgent Care Association of Florida Announced
STUART — A new online health care member organization has been formed to provide a voice for the hundreds of urgent care providers in Florida while serving as a clearinghouse for those wishing to provide goods and services to those providers. The Urgent Care Association of Florida (UCAOFL) was formed after physicians and urgent care clinic owners expressed a need for an independent statewide association where members could share medical issues and concerns, Best Practices, marketing techniques, and ways to make the public more aware of the benefits of urgent care medicine.
The UCAOFL was formed by Sam Yates, a veteran health care marketing professional based in Florida, and a small group of advisors who represent urgent care, financial services, insurance, and other industries with ties to the urgent care and medical industry. The Urgent Care Association of Florida is the first of a series of such associations geared towards state membership throughout the United States.
