Interesting article on a couple of issues.  I’ve owned or managed about 18 urgent care centers in my career, but never a 24/7 facility.  I wonder what the economics are and in what situations/communities it is feasible.  Areas where ER overcrowding goes on all night long?
The other service I’m seeing more and more is a pre-paid option, something I toyed with in the early 90’s but didn’t catch on.  What’s changed now that patients seem to be interested in this service?
Basically you provide a certain number of services or visits per year for a set fee, with or without a copay.  I still like the idea and will probably offer it in my future urgent care centers.
Is your center open 24/7?
Do you provide a pre-paid urgent care service option?
