No Appointments, fewer Disappointments

Urgent care facilities provide immediate relief and convenient access for walk-in patients (those without a scheduled visit or doctor’s appointment). Compared to typical health clinics, they operate on extended hours. In some cases, they serve as the initial point of treatment for cases which are found to be severe or requiring full hospitalization, especially in remote or underserved areas.

In Lehi, Utah, where the first full-service hospital was just completed in 2015, an urgent care facility is a life saver, providing urgent treatment to a variety of cases, from accidents like slip-and-fall, sudden illnesses like fever and flu to recurring bouts of pain like arthritis.
