Urgent Care

If you suffer from a non-life-threatening emergency that requires immediate care, you may also visit our UW Medicine Urgent Care clinics, where care is available on a walk-in basis. When your primary care clinic is closed, urgent care can address the sudden onset of illness and other health issues that could worsen without immediate attention.


Virtual Clinic

UW Medicine Virtual Clinic brings healthcare to you and your family 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without an appointment. Care Simple Providers' board-certified family practice physicians and nurse practitioners assess, diagnose and recommend treatment for your condition via secure video chat or over the phone. ​​
