Physicians Immediate Care, Belvidere, IL
Physicians Immediate Care was founded in 1987 by a group of emergency physicians and continues to be physician owned and operated. It was their vision that the Rockford, IL community needed a free-standing, walk-in urgent care and occupational medical facility.
With no occupational clients or private practice the early years of Physicians Immediate Care were difficult. Hard work and relentless commitment to quality and service has resulted in growth consistently exceeding 20 percent per year.
Physicians Immediate Care has grown to be the leader in urgent care medicine in the Northern Illinois market with muliple locations in the greater Chicago and Rockford area and outside Illinois including Indiana and Nebraska. From their humble beginnings in 1987 Physicians Immediate Care has grown to 30 clinics and over 300,000 patient visits per year and still growing!
