Our Urgent Care Center
The Urgent Care Center (UCC) is a walk-in clinic focused on providing acute care. The Urgent Care Center primarily treats injuries or illnesses requiring immediate care, but not serious enough to require an emergency room visit.
The UCC can be utilized by all TRICARE beneficiaries including TRICARE Prime and TRICARE Select.
If at any time you feel that you are having a true emergency, you should immediately call 911 and/or visit an Emergency Room.
Some examples of things to be seen for at the UCC:
- Minor Lacerations
- Minor Injuries
- Sore Throat
If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical situation (including mental health emergencies), call 911 immediately. Emergency care services treat life-threatening medical issues such as threats to your life, limbs, sight, or safety.
