Report Overview

The Michigan urgent care center market size was valued at USD 715.0 million in 2020 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.1% from 2021 to 2028. Urgent care centers can provide treatment for conditions that are not severe enough to be treated at an emergency department but need more than primary care. Adoption of telemedicine, the launch of new urgent care facilities, and acquisitions by key players to expand their presence in the state of Michigan are factors expected to positively impact the market growth. For instance, in November 2020, NextCare Holdings, Inc., a provider of urgent care, acquired nine clinics from Michigan Urgent Care (MUC) in the Southeast area of Michigan.

Michigan urgent care center market size, 2018 - 2028 (USD Million)

The demand for emergency services has been increasing to treat different types of emergencies, such as heart attack, stroke, electrical shock, and severe burns. According to the CDC, people in the U.S. made 145 million visits to emergency rooms in 2016. Considering the time factor, emergency rooms treat patients based on the severity of the condition, which requires an average time of 2 hours, 15 minutes from the time patients arrive until they depart. On the other hand, urgent care centers offer the advantage on a first-come, first-serve basis with an average of fewer than 30 minutes from arrival to departure. Therefore, they have emerged as an alternative to emergency departments. The primary conditions that could be treated in these centers include strains, fractures, and minor acute illnesses. Thus, these factors are boosting market growth.

With the increasing life expectancy, the geriatric population is anticipated to grow rapidly in the future. As per the data published by the Population Reference Bureau, the number of people in the U.S. aged 65 years and above is estimated to reach 95 million by 2060 from 52 million in 2018; based on percentage, it is expected to increase from 16% in 2018 to 23% by 2060. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 23% of residents in Michigan were aged 60 years and above as of 2016. The high geriatric population poses a high demand for health services as they are more susceptible to infections and diseases. This is likely to propel market growth.


COVID-19 Michigan urgent care center market impact: 2.12% increase from 2019 to 2020

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The high number of admission rates and high volume of patients visiting urgent care centers due to serious COVID-19 symptoms boosted the market growth.

Easy access to urgent care centers and rising adoption of non-traditional walk-in clinics and ambulatory services are expected to boost the market growth in the coming years.

On the other hand, the number of patients visiting urgent care and emergency centers for non-COVID-19 ailments reduced significantly. This led to losses and centers laying off urgent care center staff in Michigan.

The number of individuals visiting the centers is expected to gradually increase for common illnesses, such as sinus infections or sore throats, and check-ups such as sports physicals as schools reopen. This might lead to a shortage of staff at urgent care centers, increasing work stress for the existing care providers.


The coronavirus pandemic has had a profound impact on various sectors of the U.S. economy. The sudden outbreak of the pandemic increased the burden on the U.S. healthcare system. As the infection spread across the U.S., urgent care centers acted as the frontline in combating the health crises. Visits to emergency departments and urgent care centers increased drastically owing to the adverse symptoms of the infection such as shortness of breath and chest pain.

However, around May 2020, as lockdowns and related restrictions were loosened, several clinics began reopening. Mercy Health reopened its six urgent care facilities for patients with COVID-19 symptoms and other urgent needs and nine other facilities for patients with non-COVID-19 symptoms. Moreover, for efficient management during the pandemic, the COVID-19 Practice Management Guide was published by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. It was intended as a guide to clinicians and hospital administrators regarding the Crisis Standards of Care in their respective facilities.

Application Insights

The acute respiratory infection segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 27.2% in 2020. Urgent care centers are adopting innovative measures, such as providing diagnoses over the phone or video, for respiratory illness. This, coupled with the rising prevalence of respiratory disorders, is anticipated to drive the segment. In terms of application, the market is segmented into acute respiratory infection, general symptoms, tissue disorders, digestive system issues, skin infections, urinary tract infections, ear infections, sprains, strains, fractures and injuries, influenza pneumonia, and others.

The high prevalence of the common cold and the increasing demand for seasonal flu vaccination shots are propelling the growth of the general symptoms segment. Allergy treatment is another major factor in the spectrum of treatments offered at urgent care centers. Overall, allergies are the sixth leading cause of illness in the U.S., with approximately 1,521,275 cases of infections in Michigan annually. This is projected to favor segment growth.
