Urgent Care and After Hour Care are available for conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate or serious health risk. Non life threatening problems such as colds, flu, fever, ear infections, sprains, minor burns or cuts are examples of conditions that the urgent care or after hour staff can treat. These services should be utilized when your primary care physician’s office is closed and urgent care is needed. In addition, please find below the Nurse Advisory/After Hour assistance provided by phone for certain health plans. The Urgent Care and After Hour care facilities you may access are listed on the other side of this document. You can avoid long waiting time in the emergency room as well as the higher co-pay for an emergency room visit by using one of our Urgent Care facilities instead. Please remember to call your Primary Care Physician’s office after your Urgent Care visit if a follow-up appointment is needed.
