Walk-in hours are Monday-Friday, noon to 8 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Most major insurance is accepted. Anyone who elects to go to Urgent Care at Cooley Dickinson Hospital should check with their insurance carrier to determine whether a referral or preauthorization is required. No appointment is needed.

The Urgent Care clinic is located in the main corridor at Cooley Dickinson Hospital, just inside the main entrance, and offers immediate care for injuries including strains and sprains, minor fractures, minor cuts and lacerations, sutures and suture removal, minor burns, and simple removal of foreign bodies.

Staff also treat urgent but non-life-threatening illnesses such as cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, viral illnesses, rashes, ear and eye infections, and infections of the respiratory and urinary tracts. Incision and drainage of abscesses will also be available.

In addition, Cooley Dickinson Urgent Care offers on-site X-ray and lab drawing/specimen collection services as needed, and also provides routine healthcare services such as sports and camp physicals. Cooley Dickinson opened its Urgent Care clinic in October.
