When you just can't wait to feel better, trust the team from Wentworth-Douglass for your urgent care needs. Our Express Care centers are staffed by the same team as the hospital's Emergency Department, so you're sure to get expert care, right away.
If you need further treatment with a specialist, a follow up with your primary care provider, or advanced care at the hospital, the team at Express Care will make a seamless transition for you. We have the connections to get you seen quickly, and get you back to feeling better.
Express care fills an important healthcare gap when you need immediate care but not the level of care available in an emergency department. With on-site lab and X-ray equipment, Express Care can handle more severe conditions and injuries, such as broken bones and burns. Express care centers are also usually open longer hours than a doctor’s office and a visit often costs much less than the emergency room due to the level and efficiency of the care provided.
No appointment is necessary to visit an Express Care center.
Trust your instincts. If you feel it’s serious, go to the nearest Emergency Department. For more minor issues, waiting to see your primary care provider or visiting a walk in clinic like Wentworth-Douglass Prompt Care – which is equipped to care for minor conditions without the need to wait for an appointment may be your best option.
