Walk-In Urgent Care         

We care for non-life-threatening illness and injury for walk-in patients. Those with more serious medical needs will be seen first.


Our Team

Our team consists of emergency physicians, paramedics, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, as well as medical assistants, radiology techs and patient access team members. If you require further treatment with a specialist or advanced care at the hospital, they will make a seamless transition for you. They will also follow up with your primary care provider after your visit.

How urgent care differs from an ER visit or a prompt care visit

URGENT CARE: Use urgent care when you need immediate care but do not have a life-threatening condition that requires an emergency department. We offer on-site lab and X-ray equipment and can handle most severe conditions and injuries (see list below). Our urgent care center is 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.

ER:  If you are experiencing chest pain, dizziness, heavy bleeding, loss of consciousness, trouble breathing or speaking, or severe abdominal pain, please call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Department.

PROMPT CARE:  For more minor issues, waiting to see your primary care provider or visiting a walk in clinic like Wentworth-Douglass Prompt Care may be your best option.  NOTE: Appointments are required for Prompt Care.

BILLING: Express Care patients will receive two bills – one from Wentworth-Douglass Hospital for services rendered at Express Care, and one from Seacoast Emergency Physicians for the provider who evaluated and treated you. You may also be billed for any needed laboratory, imaging or medical equipment. Coverage for services at Express Care vary by insurance plan. Depending on your insurance coverage, you may have out of pocket expenses such as a deductible, coinsurance or co-pay. Please verify your plan's benefits and payment responsibilities for Express Care services. Read More
