Urgent Care Websites
Your Urgent Care Needs a Website
Less than half of the over 8,000 stand alone urgent care facilities have a web site. In today’s competitive environment, that means that those urgent cares who do not have a site are losing patients to other clinics even if their location is more convenient or offers better or more economical services than other facilities.
Today a majority of patients who need immediate medical treatment first go to the web to find an urgent care near them. If your urgent care doesn’t have a web site or your site is not optimized for search engines, the potential patient will probably never see you. Ads in the yellow pages miss entire demographics that are key to an urgent care’s success. Younger people and travelers either do not have access to or never use a phone book. A whole generation now finds much of their information on web enabled mobile devices. To make sure that these potential patients find you quickly and gain the confidence that you can provide for their medical need, you need a professional and inviting medical web site design that is optimized for search engines.
Patients want to know that they will receive prompt high quality care in a pleasant environment
Patients want to know more about you than just where you are located and whether there is a physician on duty. They want to know that your physicians and staff are of high quality and that their care will be prompt and professional. A high quality professionally designed medical web site for your urgent care can help them make a decision whether to visit your facility or not. The more information that you can give them to more likely it is that they will come to you for care. Detailed information and photos of your facility, testimonials from satisfied patients, and information on your services and staff give them confidence that they will receive the care they need in a professional and courteous manner. Links to health information sites and personal health records show that you are in tune with current trends in health information and maintenance. On line appointment scheduling and on line forms that can be filled out prior to their visit ensure them that they will be seen promptly and efficiently. And well timed “specials” such as flu shots, vaccinations or school physicals can significantly increase your revenues.
