Urgent Health Care Centers Cut Down on Wait Times and Save Healthcare Dollars.

It’s Sunday afternoon and you’re still not feeling better. You’ve rested all weekend, thinking whatever is making you sick would pass, but now you feel worse than ever. Your doctor’s office isn’t open on weekends, and you’re supposed to be in a meeting at work tomorrow morning at 9. What to do? Head to one of Penn State Health St. Joseph’s Urgent Care Centers, where you’ll see a healthcare provider who can advise you on your condition and help you make a plan for recovery.

Healthcare providers at Urgent Care Centers can treat fractures, cuts, burns and other injuries, as well as conditions such as an allergic reaction, flu, mild to moderate asthma attack, eye irritation, or nausea. Each location has X-ray and lab services so patients can be diagnosed and treated during their visit.
