Urgent care

Urgent care provides treatment for minor conditions and illnesses that need immediate attention, but are not cause for an emergency room visit. Urgent care facilities are open beyond the hours of a typical medical practice, providing care during the day, weeknights and on weekends.

More than just an urgent care center

When patients seek urgent care at our clinics, they can expect convenient, high-quality service backed by our patient-centered health system. We give our patients access to care, including after hours and during weekends and holidays, for minor issues.

We offer a seamless, positive experience for patients treated at our urgent care locations in the Kansas City area. Following a visit, we will send a summary to the patient's primary care physician and refer the patient back to the primary physician for follow-up care. This process results in a continuity of care designed to enhance the patient's experience and improve health outcomes.

If a patient does not have a primary care physician, urgent care staff can help locate one. We can also quickly refer patients to one of our affiliated specialists if additional treatment is required.

Our services are meant to complement—never replace—the care provided by our patients' primary providers. Our urgent care centers offer a variety of medical services, including:

  • Flu shots
  • Occupational medicine
  • Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing and drug screenings
  • Sports physicals
  • Various student and travel vaccinations
  • X-rays for minor injuries
