When illness or injury occurs, VMH Urgent Care can provide quality medical care week day evenings and weekends -- without an appointment. It is a cost-saving alternative to the hospital emergency room when your regular clinic is closed. For those times when you aren’t feeling well or have sustained a small injury and feel as though you shouldn’t wait to be seen by a health care provider, Urgent Care is designed for you.
Patients are seen by a medical provider in a treatment area steps away from the Emergency department. Urgent Care is billed at a lesser rate than emergency care but at a higher rate than a clinic visit. Urgent Care is covered by most insurance programs, including Medicare and Medicaid.
