HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 18, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Urgent Care for Children (UC4C), a Birmingham-based pediatric urgent care provider, will be expanding its reach this fall in opening its sixth Alabama location in Huntsville. The newest clinic will sit at 2785 Carl T. Jones Drive SE, across from Valley Bend Shopping Center. Following a successful fundraising round in March, this addition is one of several new locations planned for Urgent Care for Children in 2020.
"Our team of physicians and staff are thrilled to continue providing quality care with less waiting to the city of Huntsville. It has become increasingly clear to us that pediatric patients need access to specialized care, even when their primary care provider is not available, in the after-hours and on weekends," explained UC4C Co-Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Allury Arora. Urgent Care for Children creates a continuum of care, supplementing the hours of local pediatric offices, and provides an affordable alternative to the emergency room.
"Since opening our first clinic in the Huntsville area last year, it has been one of our fastest-growing locations. With that and the overwhelmingly positive reception from the community, we knew we wanted to expand our footprint in the market in 2020. Huntsville is one of the nation's fastest-growing cities for a good reason, and we are excited to grow with the community and continue to serve its residents 365 days of the year," said Urgent Care for Children Chief Executive Officer, Bannon Thorpe.
UC4C opened its first clinic, located in Birmingham, in 2017, and opened its Trussville location in 2018, which was succeeded by the openings of clinics in Madison, Vestavia Hills and Tuscaloosa, respectively, in late 2019. Its Huntsville clinic is set to open in the fall of 2020. The company runs the nation's first sensory-inclusive urgent care facilities and Alabama's first physician-founded, highest patient-rated, pediatric urgent care facilities.
