Because sometimes you can’t wait for an appointment.
If you are unable to get an appointment with your regular provider, you can be seen at Island Hospital’s Walk-In Clinic with no appointment necessary. Our team of friendly healthcare providers can see you for minor illnesses or injuries that aren’t life-threatening, yet require medical attention now. We understand that seeing your primary care provider is always preferred, but sometimes, illness and injuries just can’t wait!
Our services are meant to compliment the care you receive from your primary care provider, on an urgent-needs basis. While we can’t treat life-threatening conditions, we can treat common medical conditions and help start your recovery process.
Common health concerns we treat includes:
Rash or minor allergic reaction
Scrape or minor cut
Sprain or strain
Urinary tract infection
And much more!
