With five convenient locations, the Immediate Care Centers of Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System provide quick, quality care on a walk-in basis or with an appointment for minor medical emergencies; accidents such as lacerations, burns, bruises, sprains or broken bones; and illnesses like cold and flu. We see patients of all ages, beginning at 6 months old. We have on-site capabilities for X-rays, EKG, lab tests (blood work, etc.) and more.
It’s important to understand when you should visit your primary care physician, when urgent care is appropriate, or when you should seek treatment in the hospital emergency department. Anyone with a life- or limb-threatening illness or injury should always seek treatment at the emergency department (ED). Those suffering chest pain or symptoms of a stroke should call 911 and go directly to the ED. Pregnant women should seek care with their obstetrician or, if an emergency, go directly to the ED.
When you need immediate care, we are here for you seven days a week, with extended hours to accommodate your schedule. Here, you’ll receive the quality care you expect from a traditional doctor’s office with the added convenience of an immediate care center. Now offering convenient online reservations so that you can wait at home.
