Urgent Care

The patient experience at our health care facilities is an important goal at BCH. That’s why we're encouraging those who need to visit our Erie Urgent Care Center to do so Tuesday through Thursdays, if possible, for routine visits or non-urgent needs. Wait times are often longer Friday through Monday.

When your doctor is not available or you can’t or don’t want to wait, our Erie Urgent Care Center offers 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 is open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
