Different from office visits or emergency room care, appropriate urgent care visits include those suffering from non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses and are unable to schedule an office visit with their primary care provider.
Closed on holidays, BCHC’s Urgent Care is located near the Specialty Clinic entrance on the northwest side of the hospital.
