What is Urgent Care?
Urgent Care clinics treat non-life-threatening illnesses and conditions. You’ll have shorter wait times than the emergency room and save money, too. You can also avoid the wait to see your primary care doctor.
Southwest Medical Urgent Care
At Southwest Medical, we’ve taken the Urgent Care concept several steps further. We understand that medical visits can’t always wait. That’s why our Urgent Care centers are open seven days a week and most holidays (hours may change).
We also have one Urgent Care center with a 23-hour observation unit. If we can treat your problem within 23 hours, you can avoid going to the emergency room for further treatment.
Plus, Southwest Medical Urgent Care is a part of OptumCareTM. This means we can use the latest technology and information to improve your care.
To see whether Urgent Care is right for you, call the Telephone Advice Nurse at 1-702-242-7330 or 1-800-288-2264. The nurse can help you decide where to go.
