Healthcare Needs Happen Around the Clock

Unfortunately, illness or injury can strike at any time — not just when your doctor’s office is open. It’s in those times that you want to know that you are supported by a broad network of locally based urgent care centers.

If you or your child have a non-life-threatening illness or injury, choosing an urgent care center over the emergency room generally will allow you to get treatment faster. In an emergency room, patients with the most severe cases get treated first. That means if you’re waiting for more basic medical care, you could be in for a long wait while others are seen in front of you.

Urgent care centers work more like regular doctor’s offices where patients are seen in the order they arrive, so if you have a minor illness or injury, you’ll likely be seen quicker than you would in the emergency room.

When you choose an urgent care location within or partnered with our health system you can be assured the healthcare providers will have access to your full medical record thanks to MyChart, our shared records system.
