The Urgent Care Center, located on the Burbank Campus in Fitchburg, provides care for minor illnesses and injuries from 9 am to 7 pm, seven days a week (except Thanksgiving and Christmas). The Urgent Care Center offers patients a wide range of walk-in services for minor illnesses, minor orthopedic injuries and wound care, including:
- Allergic reactions
- Colds, flu and sore throats
- Ear infections
- Eye injuries
- Muscle sprains and strains
- Poison ivy
- Upper respiratory infections
The Urgent Care Center has full x-ray, electrocardiogram, respiratory and laboratory services, and also provides suturing, splinting and IV treatment.
The Urgent Care Center is staffed with board-certified physicians, registered nurses and medical personnel specially trained in acute care for all age groups.
The best way for patients to know if they should go to the Urgent Care Center is to speak with their primary care physician first. Patients who have a condition that requires treatment and are unable to contact their doctor, should come to the Urgent Care Center.
We are dedicated to providing patients with prompt attention and a timely diagnosis. We send primary care physicians a report for follow-up treatment.
