Another urgent care entrepreneur is taking her show on the road, this time in and around Colorado Springs. The brainchild of nurse practitioner Eileen Flavin, Anywhere Urgent Care is a house calls-only urgent care that boasts it offers 90% of the “essential” urgent care services available in clinic locations (leaving out x-rays and ultrasound, but including basic labs, simple suturing, and treatment for an array of complaints) as well as the off-hours convenience that’s become the hallmark of urgent care. Anywhere Urgent Care will start working with insurers after New Year’s Day. It’s the first service of its kind in the Colorado Springs area—enough of a novelty that it’s been able to garner local media attention, which is essential to getting the word out, especially with no office location on which to display signage.
