Urgent Care

To protect our patients and staff, all people entering a BCH Urgent Care Center 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). *Bandanas, neck gaiters, and masks with valves are not acceptable.

Closure Update:

Superior Urgent Care will be closed until further notice. Please contact Erie UC at 303-415-5810 or Gunbarrel UC at 303-415-5199. We apologize for the inconvenience.

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. Open seven days a week, 365 days a year from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

Symptomatic patients require a tele-health video visit prior to an in-clinic visit. BCH requires proof of a negative PCR Covid test within 48 hours to be seen in clinic.

BCH Urgent Care Centers are open 7 days a week from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
