From the start, we have focused on delivering exceptional care with an uncompromising commitment to our patients.
Doctors Care opened in 1981 as the first minor emergency medical center in Columbia, S.C., offering urgent and family care services with flexible evening and weekend hours. Today we are a multi-state network, with more than 50 offices providing timely, convenient health care services. Our team has grown to include 1,100 dedicated health care professionals. We have nearly 200 providers focused on urgent care, family care, occupational medicine and employee wellness. And we serve more than 2,000 employers regionally through our Occupational Medicine services.
All Doctors Care facilities have achieved the prestigious designation of accredited Urgent Care Clinics. The Urgent Care Association of America, a group representing more than 3,200 medical professionals, granted Doctors Care the designation after a stringent review of each of our clinics in South Carolina. The designation assures patients that they can turn to Doctors Care to treat a range of illnesses and injuries and that they can find services such as X-rays and laboratory work on site. This places our clinics among only a fraction of such facilities in the nation to be recognized for the range and quality of services offered.
