Walk-In Centers

UHS Walk-In Centers provide you and your family with minor, urgent care.  With no appointment necessary, you can expect quality medical attention at your convenience.  The physicians at UHS Walk-In Centers diagnose and treat a broad range of medical problems such as cuts, coughs, fevers, flu, ear infections and vomiting.

When should I visit a Walk-In Center vs. the Emergency Room?

We encourage you to choose the primary care doctor (who may be a family practitioner or internal medicine specialist) who best meets your family’s specific needs and philosophy about health care.  But sometimes you need care when your doctor isn't available but the emergency room isn't necessary. That's when a UHS Walk-In Center is for you.
