"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to care for the residents of Maricopa," said Jean Dorame, site director of Dignity Health Urgent Care in Maricopa. "As part of the Dignity Health continuum of care, each of our patients will be seen by a board certified/eligible doctor, a practice not commonly found at other urgent care centers."
In addition to physicians, registered nurses will treat patients of all ages with non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries that need immediate attention. Ailments ranging from a bad cough or serious sprain to a case of the flu, asthma and more all are treated at Dignity Health Urgent Care in Maricopa.
