Walk-In Clinics: Urgent Care and Express Care Locations

COVID-19 update: Our Express Care and Urgent Care clinics remain open to serve our patients. During this time, we have implemented additional screening precautions to keep you and our caregivers safe.

  • If you do NOT have symptoms of COVID-19 and are using our clinics for an unrelated concern, please walk in or save your spot below. (COVID symptoms include fever, a new cough or a new shortness of breath.)
  • If you think you may have COVID-19 or if you have related symptoms, please do NOT walk in or save your spot online. Call our nurse line, 800-926-8273, first to speak with a nurse who will evaluate your potential risk and guide you to appropriate care. For more details on the nurse line, testing and possible symptoms, see COVID-19 Nurse Line.
