Walk-In Centers

UHS Walk-In Centers provide you and your family with minor, immediate 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?

When to Use the Walk-In Center

Walk-In Center is for immediate care medical conditions where prompt attention is needed, but there is not an immediate, serious threat to health or life. You should seek Walk-In Clinic care for:
  • Colds
  • Flu symptoms
  • Sore throat
  • Cough or upper respiratory symptoms
  • Ear or sinus pain
  • Minor burns and bruises

  • Abdominal pain
  • Rash or hives
  • Stings and bites
  • Allergies
  • Fevers
  • Headaches
  • Foreign object in eye or nose
  • Urinary symptoms
  • Work related injuries

When to Use Emergency Care:

Emergency care is for sudden or unexpected medical conditions that could cause significant harm or death without prompt attention. You should call 9-1-1 and seek emergency care for:
  • Chest pain (suspected heart attack or stroke)
  • Amputation of limbs or deep wounds with severe bleeding
  • Sudden confusion, weakness, dizziness, numbness, severe headache or difficulty speaking or breathing
  • Severe head injuries with loss of consciousness or new seizures

  • Vomiting blood
  • Smoke or chemical inhalation
  • Poisoning, overdoses and suicidal behavior

  • Pregnancy complications over 20 weeks including labor, bleeding, fluid leakage, decreased fetal movement

When is UHS Walk-In the right choice?

  • When your family physician is unavailable
  • When you are feeling ill or hurt and need urgent care
  • When your schedule doesn't fit a typical appointment

Walk-In Centers are convenient:

  • No appointment needed
  • Easy access and parking
  • Four locations near your home or work

Antibiotics aren't always the answer.

UHS is committed to appropriate antibiotic prescribing. That’s why we guarantee we will do our best to prescribe antibiotics only when you need them.

  • The FACTS
    • Overusing antibiotics encourages bacteria to become
    • resistant to treatment.
    • This means antibiotics will no longer work against infections.
    • Antibiotic resistance threatens everyone’s health.
    • Antibiotics do not work for viral infections such as colds, sinusitis, the flu, or most sore throats and earaches.
  • Our ADVICE
    • Only take antibiotics if prescribed.
    • Follow instructions from your healthcare professional.
    • Always finish the entire course of antibiotics.
    • Do not give your antibiotics to someone else.
  • PREVENT the spread of infection by...
    • Exercising good hand hygiene by washing hands regularly.
    • Preparing food hygienically
    • Keeping vaccinations up to date.
We promise to prescribe antibiotics ONLY when the benefits outweigh the risks.

Talk to your healthcare provider about your role in responsible antibiotic use.

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.
