Both centers are open daily, including weekends, from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.
When you need non-emergency care and your primary care physician is not available, our urgent care physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and others can care for you. We do not take the place of your primary care physician, but we work in cooperation with your physician.
Urgent care can be more costly than your physician's office but less expensive than a visit to the emergency department.
On-site imaging and lab services support our walk-in urgent care capabilities. If you need lab or imaging tests, they can often be provided during your visit. The urgent care team can arrange this for you.
