An urgent care clinic can be a good option at night or on weekends when you or your child's doctor may not be in the office. At MultiCare Urgent Care clinics, you can get x-rays, stitches and care for a wide range of minor injuries and illnesses that aren't life threatening, yet require medical attention on the same day.
Urgent care clinics are ideal for treating conditions such as:
Please note, due to heavy patient volumes in our urgent care clinics, we may sometimes need to close our patient registration before our normal closing hours. If you plan to visit one of our urgent care clinics within two hours of the normal closing time, we strongly recommend you call us first to ensure that we can see you.
MultiCare Urgent Care clinics offer free online tools for you to use to "join the line" for care, no matter where you are, allowing you to skip a long wait in our waiting rooms.

After you've saved your spot in line, you will receive text messages updating you on your estimated wait time, so you can plan to arrive at your selected Urgent Care clinic close to when we'll be ready for you.
Using your mobile phone, text MultiCare to 31996 to get a link to download the free app on your Android or Apple mobile device.
You can also join the line for care at any one of our Urgent Care clinics by selecting a clinic from the menu at the left, and then choosing the “Join the Line” button located at the top right-hand side of that location's page.
We will still continue to see patients on a walk-in basis.
If your medical condition is serious or even life-threatening, you should call 911 or have someone take you to your nearest Emergency Department immediately. MultiCare's Emergency Departments are located at Allenmore, Good Samaritan, Mary Bridge Children's and Tacoma General hospitals, as well as Auburn and Covington medical centers. Learn more about whether Urgent Care or an Emergency Department is your best option.
All MultiCare locations, from our numerous Urgent Care clinics to our five South Sound hospitals, are linked by our electronic health record system. This means that any MultiCare provider who treats you has instant access to your medical information, which ensures that your care is safer, smarter and better coordinated. As a MultiCare patient, you, too, can access your medical information online by signing up for MyChart. You can enroll online or ask your MultiCare provider for more information.
