Lansing Urgent Care celebrates milestone 10 year Anniversary!
Thursday, August 11, 2016
After opening 6 Successful Urgent Care's and employing over 100 staff members,
Lansing Urgent Care takes time to celebrate its milestone 10 year Anniversary!
It seems like just yesterday, Dr. Terry and Catherine Matthews’ vision came to life when they opened their doors on August 15, 2006 at 505 N Clippert St. near Frandor in Lansing, and started Lansing Urgent Care. The Matthews soon realized how great the need for urgent care services had become in Greater Lansing.
“Honestly, we were pretty nervous when we opened our very first clinic,” said owner, Dr.Terry Matthews. “Like any new business owners, we did not know what future would hold but we felt passionate we could change the urgent care business model; so we did.”
The Matthews entrepreneurial story starts with the married couple and Catherine’s parents (who came out of retirement) to work the 7-day a week clinic. The four of them worked side by side for 80+ hours each week. The family was thrilled to hire their first employee after 8 long months. Fast forward 10 years later, 6 clinics, over 100 employees and the Matthews vision has come to life. “All we ever wanted to do was provide good people, good jobs in the urgent care setting. We are so grateful to still be doing that and celebrating this milestone with our staff and patients.” Said owner, Catherine Matthews.
With much focus and determination, Terry and Catherine Matthew’s decided to change the urgent care market in Lansing entirely. Today they promote six locations, including a 24 hour clinic 7 days a week, and have expanded their services to provide area employers much needed Occupational Health Services. The Matthews and their team at Lansing Urgent Care have invigorated the Greater Lansing area with quality, efficient urgent care services which have become a vital component for our community’s family health care needs.
“Above all else, we would never reach this level of success without our devoted staff and medical providers,” Catherine Matthews said. “Each day they work incredibly hard to provide comprehensive, high quality, compassionate care to every patient at every hour of the day.”
Since Lansing Urgent Care opened in August 2006, the Matthews have been awarded the 2011 Greater Lansing Healthcare Entrepreneur of the Year award, and the company was recognized as a 2010 Top 50 Company to Watch in Michigan. Lansing Urgent Care is proud to sponsor charitable organizations such as the Impression 5 Science Center and St. Vincent Catholic Charities. Their success has led to the expansion of a sixth location in Haslett, MI this May of 2016.
Dr. Terry Matthews said. “I know we can continue to provide more jobs in the Lansing Community and continue to provide exceptional care that will keep us going for many more years to come. We are truly grateful for our patient’s loyalty to which we commend our staff – without whom this business would not be what it is today.”
