If your clinic is closed or you can't get an appointment, just walk in to urgent care. No appointment is needed. Urgent care is available to everyone, whether you are a current patient or not.
Everyone, from babies to adults, can be seen at Allina Health Urgent Care for most of the same non-life-threatening illnesses or injuries as at a primary care clinic.
Call your primary care clinic and ask to speak with a nurse. Many primary care clinics have early morning, evening and weekend hours. Same-day appointments may be available.
Another option is to call your health insurance provider. Many health plans offer a nurse line, available 24/7.
A good rule of thumb is to go to urgent care for a non-emergency concern, when your clinic is closed or if your health care provider does not have any open appointments.
Urgent care treats people of all ages for medical problems such as:
If medical care is needed immediately to preserve life or avoid permanent harm, go to the nearest hospital emergency department (ED)/emergency room (ER) or call 911. Two examples are severe pain and major trauma.
Also, go to the nearest hospital emergency department or call 911 right away if you have any signs or symptoms of a life-threatening condition, such as:

It depends on your health plan (medical insurance). Health plans define and pay differently for urgent care and clinic/office visits. Please check with your health plan about differences.
Most health plan benefits are designed to encourage use of a primary care provider for routine care. Urgent care is an additional care option for those occasional times when the need is not life-threatening, but more immediate.
Urgent care copays are likely to be lower than hospital emergency room (ER) copays.
Urgent care often treats unexpected needs, such as sprains, bone breaks, skins rashes or high fevers. This is why urgent care providers see patients in order of arrival and seriousness of their need.
Just walk in and you will be seen by the first available provider.
If you already are an Allina Health patient, our urgent care clinics can access your electronic health record. Your Allina Health primary care provider will be kept up-to-date on the urgent care received via your electronic health record.
With your consent, you can have one common medical record that can be securely accessed by caregivers at:
