BATON ROUGE, La. - June 14, 2022 - PRLog -- After a lengthy evaluation process involving operations in multiple states, Premier Health and its network of urgent care centers have once again earned accreditation through the national Urgent Care Association (UCA). Representing both urgent care accreditation and certification, they are the UCA's stamp of approval for urgent care operators that meet or exceed industry standards for safety, quality, and scope of services.
Accreditation involves a comprehensive assessment of the following areas of urgent care operations:
- Human Resources
- Patient Care Processes

- Patient Privacy
- Patient Rights and Responsibilities
In addition to UCA urgent care accreditation and certification, Premier Health was awarded a certification in Occupational Health and a commendation for our ongoing Antibiotic Stewardship efforts.
