Urgent Care

When it’s not an emergency, but you want immediate care, walk into one of our Mercy Urgent Care or Mercy Convenient Care locations. Both can provide care quickly without the wait and expense of a visit to the emergency room. We offer pediatric urgent care as well as adult care.

Our Urgent Care locations are open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Check individual listings for Convenient Care hours. We are closed on Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.

What is the difference between urgent care and convenient care?

Convenient Care is a great option when you can’t get in to see your regular doctor. You can walk in without an appointment and see a health professional for the same cost as a visit to your regular doctor. Come to Mercy Convenient Care for treatment of minor health conditions, such as:

Convenient Care may also offer school, sports or work physicals and preventive care, such as flu shots or immunizations.

Urgent care doctors treat all of the same conditions as Convenient Care, plus injuries and illness that require a more advanced response, such as stitches or X-rays. A visit to Mercy Urgent Care costs more than a visit to convenient care, but still saves you money over a trip to the ER.
