When is urgent care right for you?
Have a broken bone, an infection, belly pain, or another minor illness? Urgent care can help you with medical issues that require prompt attention, but aren’t emergencies.
If you think you are having a medical or psychiatric emergency, immediately call 911 or go to the nearest hospital.3 Do not attempt to access emergency care through this website.
Not sure which care is right for you?
If you need help choosing the care that’s right for you, contact us 24/7 at 800-777-7904 (TTY 711).
