CGH Ready Care Clinic

CGH Medical Center is proud to provide our patients with a convenient urgent healthcare option. Please scroll down for more information on the CGH Ready Care Clinic.

From sore throats and the flu to rashes, ear aches and other same-day care services, the CGH Ready Care Clinic is here for you. Located in the lower level of the CGH Downtown Clinic, we offer the convenience of a walk-in clinic when you need prompt medical attention for acute minor illnesses. Although we encourage patients to check with their primary care physicians first, we're here to help in their absences or if their schedules cannot accommodate immediate needs.

When to Use CGH Ready Care

CGH Ready Care is for acute minor illnesses where prompt attention is needed, but there is not an immediate, serious threat to health or life.

When to Go to the Emergency Room

Emergency care is for sudden or unexpected medical conditions that could cause significant harm or death without prompt attention.
