Carris Health Urgent Care

High Quality, Same-Day Care For Non-Life-Threatening Concerns

Urgent care addresses non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries in a way that’s quick and convenient. It’s a cost-saving alternative to the emergency room when your regular clinic is closed or when you’re unable to see your primary care doctor as soon as you’d like.

Urgent Care is not intended for routine or chronic medical care. It’s important to see a primary health care provider for regular and preventive health services.

The Emergency Room vs. Urgent Care

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Deep cuts and excessive bleeding
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Numbness in the face, arm or leg
