Broward Health Urgent Care Opens in Coral Springs

Coral Springs, Fla. – Broward Health, a world-class health system in Broward County that serves the medical needs of the community, now welcomes a brand new facility: Broward Health Urgent Care (BHUC), located in the Magnolia Shoppes in Coral Springs.
It is open seven days a week, and no appointment is necessary. Extended weeknight and weekend hours make it a convenient location for children or adults suffering from minor ailments such as colds, flus, earaches, strains, sprains and more. Pre-employment screenings and sports physicals are also available.
Urgent care is considered the middle ground between a traditional hospital emergency room and a doctor’s office. With BHUC minutes away from its sister facility hospital, Broward Health Coral Springs, the services of both facilities complement each other.
“The two facilities work hand-in-hand should there be a need to refer a patient to the hospital for a higher level of care,” said Chris Wing, BHUC administrator, who also serves as the administrator for Broward Health Weston. “This added bonus not only brings peace of mind, but also an added convenience for patients when they arrive at the hospital. These are just some of the features that make our urgent care center unique from the rest.”
Patients who receive treatment at BHUC can rest assured that they are receiving the highest quality of urgent care services that adhere to Broward Health’s high standards. The center is staffed with board certified physicians and radiologists along with registered nurses who have critical care experience.
“Once you are in the urgent care center, you are not exposed to all the drama associated with a typical ER,” said Wing. “The experience is seamless. Patients bypass the extended wait time, and generally speaking are seen within an hour – all with quality service.”
In addition, Dr. David Fink, from the Broward Health Physician Group, has his family medicine practice conveniently located in an adjacent space. While Dr. Fink will not be working at BHUC, urgent care patients without a primary care provider will have the option to visit Dr. Fink’s practice for follow-up care.
