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:
Our urgent care clinics also perform sports physicals (pre-participation physicals) for student athletes.
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 offers two alternatives to traditional walk-in, urgent care services: MultiCare Doctor on Demand and MultiCare eCare. Both bring high-quality medical care to wherever you are in Washington state, all for a reasonable, set fee.
MultiCare Doctor on Demand allows you to connect face-to-face with a board-certified doctor via video chat. Our virtual urgent care service can treat many of the same illnesses and conditions you would visit an urgent care clinic for, including cold and flu; bronchitis and sinus infections; pediatric issues, UTIs; eye issues; upset stomachs; rashes and skin issues; asthma and allergies; and sports injuries.
MultiCare eCare connects patients to clinicians via a secure, online portal to address a number of common medical conditions. Simply create an account online, complete a short online interview, and a clinician will review your information and send you a treatment plan via text or email message, typically in less than 60 minutes during regular business hours.
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.
