The Urgent Care Association of America has designated Lafayette General Urgent Care Center (UCC) at Carencro as a certified urgent care provider. Lafayette General’s Urgent Care Centers in River Ranch and Sugar Mill Pond already carry this distinction. The Carencro location which opened in December 2015, earned its certification by meeting all criteria established by the Urgent Care Association of America.
As the health care environment changes, it is more important for patients to understand the treatment options available to them. Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. Lafayette General’s urgent care centers accept unscheduled walk-in patients during all hours of operation.
When a medical condition – such as an unexpected cut, burn, sprain or fracture – does not require a visit to the emergency department, Lafayette General Urgent Care Centers are equipped with X-ray and laboratory services, as well as a licensed provider available to perform minor procedures.
Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and care at considerable less cost than the ER.
