An urgent care center is a type of walk-in medical clinic that focuses on delivery of ambulatory care in a dedicated medical facility, but outside of a traditional emergency room.

While urgent care centers primarily treat injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care, they are not typically prepared to handle concerns serious enough to require an Emergency Room visit. Urgent care centers are distinguished from similar ambulatory health care centers such as emergency departments and convenient care clinics by the scope of conditions treated and the available facilities always on-site.

Urgent care centers are usually not open 24-hours a day, but do have extended hours and can come to the aid of those in need of immediate care.
