Urgent Care for Children Secures Presence in Southwest Tennessee
Pediatric urgent care clinic selects Memphis as home for seventeenth location
Memphis, Tenn., (Dec. 9, 2021) – Urgent Care for Children (UC4C), a Birmingham-based pediatric urgent care provider, is now open and ready to deliver its notable level of quality urgent care treatment to children in the city of Memphis. The newest clinic is located at 5849 Poplar Avenue, near Target and REI. This location will be the company’s tenth clinic opening in the year 2021, and their sixth location in the state of Tennessee, as the organization continues its rapid expansion across the Southeast.
“Our mission as a physician-owned and operated pediatric urgent care has remained clear since first opening in 2017: provide quality care, convenient care, and continuity of care to children in the after-hours, all 365 days of the year. Urgent Care for Children creates a continuum of care by supplementing the hours of local pediatric offices and providing an affordable alternative to the emergency room. Our team of award-winning pediatric providers and staff are elated to expand our reach and bring our standard of care to families in Memphis,” explained UC4C President and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Allury Arora.
With two clinics in the greater Memphis area, it became increasingly obvious for UC4C that a third clinic was needed in the eastern portion of the Bluff City. “Joining the booming city of Memphis is truly exciting for us. Our passion for increasing access to readily available healthcare has been met with wonderful enthusiasm from city leaders. Being conveniently located along the bustling thoroughfare of Poplar Avenue at Ridgeway Trace Shopping Center allows us to not only meet our desire of increasing access to quality healthcare but also serve as a go-to for families in one of the most populated cities in the region,” said Urgent Care for Children Chief Financial Officer, Rosh Plugge.
Headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, Urgent Care for Children began by opening nine clinics within its home state. In 2021, the urgent care provider has expanded its reach into Tennessee with locations in Hixson, Collierville, Cordova, Chattanooga, and Knoxville, along with locations in Mandeville and New Orleans, Louisiana. The Memphis clinic is scheduled to host its ribbon cutting at the start of 2022.
