Urgent Care Center
The UMC Urgent Care Center is designed to take some pressure off of our Emergency Center, so they can handle the true emergencies. It is a great middle ground between your primary care physician and the UMC Emergency Center. We know that sometimes things happen when your primary care physician is not available to see you.

We have a caring medical team ready to care for you and get you home as soon as possible.
