Convenient Treatment for Your Minor Injuries & Illnesses

Hospital emergency departments aren’t always the most appropriate choice for minor injuries and illnesses that need after-hours treatment. If your doctor’s office is closed, UChicago Medicine’s 24-hour urgent care centers provide fast, efficient and convenient lower-level emergency care for things like respiratory illnesses, diarrhea, vomiting, sprains, cuts and broken bones.

Our urgent care locations are staffed by specially trained nurses and physicians who treat patients of all ages. While they’re not intended to replace your primary care doctor, they can provide medical treatment for non-life-threatening health issues. And if your health concern is more serious, our staff is trained to stabilize patients and quickly transfer them to a facility that provides more advanced care. 

(If you or a family member is experiencing a potentially life-threatening condition, including chest pain or difficulty breathing, call 911.)

Our urgent care centers are a lower-level emergency department, which is designed to treat patients with non-life threatening illnesses and injuries. That includes, but isn’t limited to: 

  • Bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Bronchitis
  • Cuts
  • Diarrhea
  • Ear ache
  • Eye injuries
  • Flu symptoms
  • Minor burns
  • Nausea
  • Respiratory infections
  • Sprains
  • Sore throats
  • Vomiting

Our staff is trained to treat every member of your family — from newborns through senior citizens. We’re always prepared to treat adult issues. And our team members also have specialized training to address a number of injuries and illnesses that are commonly seen in children.

Our 24-hour urgent care centers provide fast, efficient and quality medical care seven days a week. We're here when you need us — any hour of the day, every day of the year.

Staff at our 24-hour centers are trained in advanced life support and can stabilize patients. We have dedicated transfer systems already in place, which means we can quickly get patients to facilities where they can receive care that's appropriate for their condition.

Just as with any emergency department visit, any recommended medical follow-up is always referred to your own primary care physician. If you don't already have a doctor, we'll be happy to help you find one.
