Sharp Rees-Stealy Urgent Care
We make it easy to safely get the care you need — through virtual visits and in-person care.
Select an option to get started.
Virtual urgent care is available on Monday through Sunday from 8 am to 8 pm. To join a virtual urgent care visit, you'll need a video-enabled computer or mobile device. Some health insurance plans charge a copay and share of cost for virtual visits, similar to in-person visits. Check with your health plan for more information.
Contact your doctor before visiting urgent care if you have any COVID-19 symptoms.
You don't have to be a Sharp Rees-Stealy patient to visit one of our five urgent care centers. We accept most insurance plans and payment methods, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and self-pay. You can also reach us after hours.
When to visit urgent care and what conditions we treat
For medical emergencies, call 911 immediately.
Common conditions treated in urgent care include:
