Previously nominated as Illinois’ Family Physician of the Year, Dr. Lamont Tyler serves as a medical director at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center, a 149-bed Level II trauma center in Bloomington, Illinois. Dr. Lamont Tyler also is a member of the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine (AAUCM).

AAUCM represents urgent care medicine (UCM) practitioners. These include physicians and their assistants, as well as nurse practitioners. As the “front line” of medical practice, UCM practitioners treat patients at emergency facilities.

UCM covers outpatient care of conditions encompassing a variety of illnesses and injuries that, when left untreated for 24 hours, could lead to irreversible health damage. These conditions include allergic reactions, pneumonia, diarrhea, and wounds or infections. AAUCM ensures that urgent care centers are equipped with the proper facilities and diagnostic equipment to ensure that immediate quality medical attention is provided. It is estimated that there are over 9,300 urgent care facilities across the country.
