There has been an interesting development in the healthcare landscape over the last five years. Emergency walk-in clinics, once only found in underserved outposts far from a municipal hospital, are now seen in strip malls and along secondary roads in nearly every town. These clinics may be affiliated with a local hospital and serve as an alternative to receiving critical care at an emergency room.
Others are non-hospital affiliated and offer quality care to those who may not have health insurance coverage for an emergency room visit. These facilities often feature family physicians as well as specialists on duty. An appointment to see a specific doctor is not required and they open early and remain open late to serve their communities. In a minor emergency, parents and patients find these facilities convenient, especially when their family physician cannot be available.
Clearly the healthcare sector is undergoing a paradigm shift in services. Considering the competition, many single physician offices are examining the patient-care landscape and many are opting to expand and to upgrade their practices to meet increasing community needs. By becoming a group practice featuring several specialists, they will remain both competitive and provide the best service possible. Bringing in additional doctors in different specialties means a need for more working capital to cover expenses such as new equipment, salaries, an office renovation or even a move to a new, larger facility.
