Illness or injury can happen at the most inconvenient times and some issues

When medical situations arise, but do not pose an immediate or serious
threat, you may want to consider visiting one of our urgent care locations
for a more convenient, less-expensive choice for situations that require
immediate medical attention, but are not life-threatening in nature.
Our urgent care center is fully connected to the St. Joseph Hoag Health
network, ensuring that details pertaining to your urgent care visit are
part of your electronic medical record which helps to facilitate communication
back to your primary care physician. If this is your first visit to our
urgent care center, we will be happy to help you find a primary care physician
