Urgent Care Clinic
Open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week
(closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day)
Walk-in, No appointment necessary
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
