The St. Andrews Urgent Care Center is the place to go for minor medical emergencies. If you or someone nearby is suffering symptoms that could be related to a stroke, heart attack, or other life-threatening illness or injury, call 911 to be treated by an Emergency Medical Services professional as soon as possible.
The St. Andrews Urgent Care Center is open every day of the year, including holidays (closed Thanksgiving and Christmas day), from 8 am to 7 pm.
Urgent care is for illnesses that cannot wait until the next business day, but do not require the full resources of a hospital Emergency Room. It is never necessary to schedule an appointment at the Urgent Care Center. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis or based on medical need. On-site radiology and laboratory services are available.
