They treat most injuries and illnesses with no appointment needed. Adults and children (3+ months) are seen in our comfortable clinic location.
When To Seek Urgent Care
If you are ill or injured and your condition is not life threatening, Urgent Care is the right choice. Because we are staffed with experienced providers, we offer more services than your typical quick clinic and at a lower cost than an emergency department.
Not sure if you should go to Urgent Care or the Emergency Department?
Urgent Care does not handle medication refills. See your regular provider for chronic conditions and pregnancy tests. Use MyHealth Info for medication refills.
Quality Medical Care
When a non-emergency illness or injury strikes outside of regular clinic hours or you can’t get an appointment when you need it, Urgent Care offers an alternative to long waits in metro hospital emergency rooms. Urgent Care offers high-quality immediate care faster and at a lower cost than a hospital emergency department.
"It's so great to have an option when your primary clinic isn't open. For things that don't need the Emergency Department - an ear infection, or strep throat - it's great to be able to get test results and treatment and move on with your day."
- Erin Bailey

What health insurance plans do you accept?
Urgent Care accepts all major health plans.
Can I use Urgent Care for all my health care needs?
Urgent care is not meant to be a replacement for developing a relationship with a primary care provider. Chronic conditions are best treated by your primary care provider. If you do not have a clinic or provider, we would be happy to schedule an appointment with one of our health care providers. An urgent care center is a convenient option when illness or injury strikes outside of regular office hours, your regular provider is on vacation or unable to offer a timely appointment.
