As the pandemic lingers on, the need for urgent care and treatment remains as urgent as it was a year ago. Emediate Cure, an emerging urgent-care franchise with two Illinois locations in Shorewood and Joliet, has continued to offer compassionate, affordable, quality urgent care to members of its Chicagoland community. Throughout the pandemic, the brand has kept its doors open — even deciding to franchise in 2021 — with a mission to serve as many patients as possible during an unprecedented health crisis.
“Our staff is board-certified and focused on providing high-quality and personalized care to each patient, taking the time to educate them on their condition and treatment plan,” said Amy Vertin, co-founder. “While other clinics were closing, had limited hours or were just doing drive-through tests, we were open, and remain open, to evaluate patients and make sure that they are vital, have what they need and do not require immediate dramatic intervention.”
In keeping with Emediate Cure’s commitment to accommodate as many patients as possible, the brand’s offices have offered extended hours throughout the pandemic. And crucially, the community-focused business accepts a range of insurance providers and offers a variety of payment options to ensure every member of its community has access to quality care regardless of their financial wherewithal.
“Most hospitals are owned by corporations and backed by investors, and most primary care physicians work out of practices owned by corporate hospitals. Because of this, it’s very difficult to find an independent practice that provides high-quality, low-cost care to people with and without insurance,” said April Kubinski. “With Emediate Cure, we’ve managed to be the opposite. This, we believe, will be crucial to us remaining an inch above other offerings. We are more than urgent care, we are community. We will continue to be a steadfast resource providing fast, reliable and affordable healthcare services.”
Staying open and nimble during the pandemic has also helped the brand earn a tremendous response from its patients, including more than 2,500 Google reviews for its Shorewood location and 2,000 for its Joliet location, respectively.
“We so appreciate the response of our community. Our patients know we are small business owners. I think that’s a big difference for us – there are real people behind this brand. There are real people who care. There are real people who take things personally. This matters,” Kubinski said.
