Ellis Medicine Walk-In Care, Urgent Care, and Emergency

The Emergency Room is not always the ideal place for every health care need. We will always be there for you, but please, reserve the ED for the most critical injuries and illnesses. For routine care, avoid the wait and try one of our walk-in sites. Know your options.

Need immediate care?

Illness and injury often come at inconvenient times. If your doctor’s office is closed and you need medical attention, turn to Ellis Walk-In, Urgent and Emergent Care. Ellis Medicine Walk-In, Urgent, and Emergent Care provides convenient and flexible care when you need it. These options offer a faster, more cost-effective alternative to going to an emergency room (ER) and are also staffed by the same experienced emergency medicine team that you would find in the ER.
