Setting the Standard for Urgent Care in the Caribbean
There was a time when you had only two choices for urgent medical care in Aruba – planning a doctor’s appointment in advance or a crowded hospital emergency room, which could take hours before being seen by a physician. After thoughtful considerations, we have decided that there is a need for urgent medical care and that we would ensure this service be offered in a reliable and timely manner.
As physicians we hear daily that our patients are tired of the difficulty accessing primary care appointments and that the emergency departments are consistently overcrowded and charge exorbitant fees. Our goal was to create a better system of care for our patients that were facing these frustrating challenges.
UCA is the first private independent provider solely dedicated to offering urgent medical care services in Aruba. Our clinic is open all year long, giving you easy access to care you can trust.
Our patients are typically seen and treated in under an hour, without the need of an appointment, making UCA the ideal provider of the care you need when you need it the most.
A visit to UCA costs a fraction of a trip to the emergency room at the local Hospital. The lower cost setting we provide results in significant savings to the overall healthcare system, in addition to out-of-pocket expenses and self-pay rates for our patients.
At UCA, these savings will never come at the cost of quality care.
