Firelands Physician Group Urgent Care Earns Re-Accreditation
(August 18, 2017 – Sandusky, Ohio) Firelands Physician Group Urgent Care locations Sandusky, Vermilion, and Clyde recently received re-accreditation with The National Urgent Care Center Accreditation (NUCCA) program. The accreditation with NUCCA, in cooperation with the Academy of Urgent Care Medicine and Board of Urgent Care Medicine, demonstrates exceptional commitment to providing the highest quality medical care and identifies medical practices that are consistent with the highest ideals within the specialty of Urgent Care Medicine.
Accreditation is a voluntary process that measures the quality of services and performance against nationally recognized standards.
“This accreditation is crucial because it shows our patients that each one of our providers and facilities at all three locations maintains a high level of quality,” said Dr. David Morris, Medical Director, Firelands Physician Group Urgent Care. “This accreditation lets patients know that we take urgent care very seriously and are committed to providing the best service and care possible.”
