** PLEASE NOTE: Appointments are required for ALL VISITS to CGH Ready Care due to the high number of patients being seen. Walk-ins will not be allowed. Thank you for your patience and support.

From sore throats and the flu to rashes, earaches and other same-day care services, the CGH Ready Care Clinic is ready for you. Located in the lower level of the CGH Downtown Clinic, the Ready Care Clinic offers 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.
