Welcome to Urgent Care

When you need to be seen now for a non-emergent need, our goal is to get you back on your way within an hour. As an integrated complement to your relationship with your primary care provider, Northwestern Urgent Care offers access to exceptional care during evening hours, on weekends, and when your primary care provider is not available.

Here’s how to make your Urgent Care visit easier:

  1. Choose which Urgent Care location to visit based on your preference and wait time displayed at the top of this page.
  2. Schedule your visit using the “schedule your visit” link at the top of the page. When you schedule your visit, you spend less time in our waiting room because you choose from the time slots we have available. Anyone who hasn’t scheduled their visit and chooses to “walk in” will be seen after you if they arrive during the same time slot.
  3. After you confirm your selection, you’ll receive a confirmation text to the mobile phone number you provided. We’ll also send text message alerts to the phone you listed, reminding you of your time slot and notifying you of any changes.
  4. Arrive at Urgent Care a few minutes before your time slot so you can register for the visit.

Remember:

  • X-Ray services are not available at the Georgia Urgent Care location at this time.
  • Routine outpatient blood draws must be done at our St. Albans location.
  • You will still have to wait in line to register for your visit. Scheduling your visit only pre-determines the time slot to be seen by a provider.
  • You can visit Urgent Care without pre-scheduling your visit based on the expected wait times. Know that anyone who does schedule a visit will be given priority.

As always, If you’re having chest or abdominal pain, please call 911 or go to the nearest emergency department.

COVID-19 testing:

As a reminder, the State COVID Resource Center at Valley Crossroads in St. Albans offers FREE COVID Testing Monday through Saturday and you can reduce your wait by making an appointment online at https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/testing. Please use this resource for testing, ESPECIALLY if you are asymptomatic, as that keeps the Urgent Care service open for those with pressing medical needs.

Right care. Right place.


Find yourself using Urgent Care often? Still haven’t had time to establish a Primary Care Provider? By joining one of our primary care offices you will have a team dedicated to your health. This relationship is key to getting the best possible collaborative care at each NMC visit.

Don’t forget to consider the advantages of Primary Care vs. Urgent Care. Generally there is lower co-pay for primary care visits and an on-going provider-patient relationship leads to better care. Plus, time sensitive visits are available for more pressing concerns. We believe receiving the right care in the right place can help save you both time and money, and lead to a healthier community.
