A free-standing facility that provides non-emergent medical, or less commonly, dental services. ACCs often have short waiting times, may not require appointments, and have a non-permanent or rotating medical staff; most visits to these centres occur outside of the regular work hours by patients who feel that their particular problem cannot wait until their private physician is available.
