Urgent Care

To protect our patients and staff, all people entering a BCH care facility will be required to wear a mask (exceptions include children <2 yrs. old or medical reasons such as trouble breathing, unconsciousness, or someone unable to remove a mask without assistance). *Cloth masks, bandanas, neck gaiters, and masks with valves are not acceptable.

When your doctor is not available or you can’t or don’t want to wait, Urgent Care Centers offer walk-in treatment of common illnesses and minor injuries at a lower cost than an Emergency Department. Patients are seen on a walk-in basis, no appointments required.

BCH Urgent Care Centers are open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
