Urgent-care center opens in Broward County, FL

Miami Herald, May 21, 2010

Baptist Medical Plaza has opened its second Broward County, FL, location with a new outpatient center that offers diagnostic imaging and urgent care. Lissette Egues, the director of government and community affairs with Baptist Health, said the center's goal is to minimize wait time and to have 90% of its urgent-care patients treated within two hours of arrival, which she said is much shorter than many hospital emergency rooms. The Urgent Care unit is staffed by an emergency-trained physician in addition to a team of registered nurses who monitor 10 treatment rooms and a triage area, Egues said.
