Urgent Care

Emergency Care

If you have a life-threatening medical emergency, call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Department.

Our ER locations in San Diego County are open 24 hours every day.

If you need same-day care from experienced doctors, visit a walk-in Urgent Care clinic at UC San Diego Health. Get expert diagnosis and treatment for conditions that are not life-threatening but should be treated within 24 hours. These include sprains, falls, flu, dehydration, vomiting and other conditions.

Key benefits: Same-day and extended-hours care available seven days a week. No appointment or referral is needed. You can even check wait times and reserve your spot online to reduce time spent in the waiting room. For your convenience, we have X-rays and lab services on-site. You can use your insurance plan or "cash pay."
