Urgent Care Clinic

Hours


Naval Hospital Bremerton Urgent Care Clinic will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on upcoming federal holiday dates: Feb. 19 Washington’s Birthday; May 27, Memorial Day; June 19, Juneteenth National Independence Day; July 4, Independence Day; Sept. 2, Labor Day; October 14, Columbus Day; and Nov. 11, Veterans Day.
 
The UCC will be closed Nov. 28, Thanksgiving, Dec. 25, Christmas Day and Jan 1, New Years Day with reduced hours on the day following each closure.
 
Additionally, due to the limited number of patients checking in during the last hour of the normal 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. shift, the last patient will be admitted at 7 p.m. Those who present after will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
 
As always, for those with a life, limb or eyesight threatening injury, please call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room.
Additionally, the Nurse Advice Line - 800 874 2273 and then select option one - is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Nurse(s) on call will discuss concerns and provide recommendations for home treatment/care if applicable, and whether the issue should be addressed via an UCC or emergency department visit.
 

About

The Urgent Care Clinic does NOT have the same capabilities as an Emergency Department. If you have a medical emergency (threat to life/limb/eyesight, uncontrolled bleeding or loss of consciousness) proceed to the nearest Emergency Department or call 911. CLICK HERE for more information.
Our walk-in Urgent Care Clinic is an extension of our primary care clinics (Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Pediatrics), treating coughs, sore throats, and minor cuts and breaks.
Patients are also encouraged to use their Primary Care Manager (PCM) and/or Medical Home Port team to schedule appointments for common illnesses such as flu and fever; minor injuries such as sprains and strains; and regular physicals, prescription refills, vaccinations and screenings.

An available resource to help determine if you should use an Urgent Care Clinic (UCC) OR an Emergency Department (ED) is the Nurse Advice Line (NAL). The NAL is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The nurse will discuss your concerns and provide recommendations for home treatment/care if applicable, and whether the issue should be addressed via an ED or UCC visit. The Nurse Advice Line's toll-free number is 1-800-874-2273, and then select option one.

Urgent medical conditions are ones that are not considered emergencies but still require care within 24 hours. Below are some examples of such conditions:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Back Pain
  • Laceration Care
  • Diagnostic services, including X-rays and laboratory tests
  • Eye irritation and redness
  • Fever or flu
  • Vomiting and Diarrhea
  • Sore Throat or cough
  • Minor broken bones and fractures (i.e. fingers, toes)
  • Skin rashes and infections
  • Urinary tract infections
