St. Lawrence Health operates two urgent care centers for patients in need of diagnostics or treatment for acute, non-life-threatening injuries on a walk-in basis. Our centers offer extended hours into the evening after most primary care offices have closed. Upon examination, our providers can diagnose and treat your condition or refer you to your primary care provider, a specialist, or the emergency department for further assessment and treatment. Our convenient urgent care centers are supported by providers from St. Lawrence Health, with specialists referred from around the network when more specific and technical care is needed.
Urgent care is not an appropriate avenue for medical emergencies; for life-threatening conditions, please visit your closest emergency room or call 911 for immediate examination.
Urgent care should be used as an option for acute conditions that do not require life-saving treatment. If you are experiencing non-life-threatening symptoms, visit your closest urgent care center. Our centers are open seven days a week, excluding major holidays, and appointments are not required.
