Right Care. Right Place.

Needing care when Primary Care is not open? Visiting from out of town? Our Urgent Care is available when you require healthcare attention and your symptoms are not life threatening. Our Urgent Cares are ready and capable of handling non-life threatening ailments such as colds & flus, fractures, cuts that require stitches, ear infections and more. Northwestern Urgent Care is open 7 days a week, offers walk-in visits, shows wait times online, and allows you to do the waiting at home.

Don’t forget to consider the cost advantages of Urgent Care vs. The Emergency Department. Urgent Cares are designed to reduce costs and provide savings for both the patient and the hospital. We believe receiving the right care in the right place can help save you both time and money, and lead to a healthier community.
