Urgent Care Centers:
Although there in no nationally accepted definition of what exactly is an urgent care center, their scope of services falls between the primary care doctors office and the emergency room. Urgent Care centers offer acute, non-emergent care emphasizing customer service. Most Homestead Urgent Care centers offer walk in visits, extended weekday and weekend hours as well as expanded services compared to primary care doctors offices.
Many services provided in Homestead Urgent Care centers are offered in primary care doctor's offices. In addition they usually include on site radiology, as well as laceration repair, administration of intravenous fluids, occupational health care, on site laboratory testing and on site medication dispensing.
The first urgent care centers in the United States opened in the 1980's and that number has grown to more than 12,000 to 20,000 centers today. Although most Urgent Care centers accept patients of all ages some specialize only in pediatric patients.

Homestead Convenient Care Clinics (Retail Clinics)
According to the Convenient Care Association Convenient Care Clinics are small health care facilities located in convenient settings accessible to the public. They provide non- emergency services to walk-in patients, regardless of insurance status, at affordable prices seven days a week. Convenient Care Clinics are primarily staffed by advanced practice nurses, including nurse practitioners. Convenient Care Clinics may also be staffed by physician assistants and/or physicians. Convenient Care Clinics provide quality care for common episodic ailments, as well as immunizations, physicals, and health screenings. As of November 2007, there were close to 800 Convenient Care Clinics in the United States. This number is predicted to grow to 1500 by the end of 2008.
Their scope of services are extremely limited compared to both Urgent Care centers and physicians offices who accept walk in patients. These sites are not designed to address urgent issues. Lacerations and minor fractures for example would not be cared for in these Convenience Care Clinic settings. Much like Urgent Care centers, continuity of care with patient follow up is not a primary focus of these Retail Clinics.
