When you’re afflicted by non-life-threatening conditions, but still need immediate treatment, urgent care offers just that.
At your nearest Providence urgent care location, you can find quick and affordable care when you need it. If you have a medical condition or illnesses that can’t wait, but it is not a life threatening condition, an Urgent Care Center is the right place for you to go. Patients at Urgent Care Centers are typically seen faster, as each patient does not take as much time as most do in a Trauma Center or Emergency Department. If the medical professionals at the Urgent Care Center think that you need an Emergency Department, they will help get you there in a timely manner. Check with your family physician or health plan to find one in your area.

Urgent care offers all the services ExpressCare offers in addition to extended lab capability, IV fluids and basic X-rays. That means Providence Urgent Care can manage serious conditions like:
