Lancaster General Health’s (LG Health) Urgent Care recently received a three-year accreditation from the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine. This accreditation, which exceeds their standard one-year accreditation, demonstrates the highest level of commitment of the Urgent Care Center to providing quality medical care that is consistent with the highest ideals of the specialty of Urgent Care Medicine.
Accreditation is a voluntary process through which an Urgent Care Center is able to measure the quality of its services and performance against nationally recognized standards. The assurance that healthcare providers and facilities maintain adequate levels of quality is of vital importance to patients.
LG Health opened its Urgent Care in June 2010 at 2118 Spring Valley Road at the intersection of Route 30 and Rohrerstown Road in Lancaster. LG Health physicians treat minor emergencies, including sprains, burns, cuts, and sports and on-the-job injuries, as well as common ailments.
