Illness and injury happen when we least expect them. Our convenient after-hours urgent care centers are available to you when you need prompt medical care. Our skilled staff can diagnose and treat your illness or injury, getting you back to feeling better.
If you are experiencing any changes in your condition, we recommend you call American Care’s medical center first to request a same-day appointment to walk in. Seeing your provider is helpful since he or she will have a record of what treatments have worked in the past.
Injuries, however, can occur at any time. You may slip and fall or cut your finger while cooking dinner. American Care’s medical centers can treat:
- Sprains and strains
- Cuts that may require stitches
By coming to our after-hours urgent care instead of the emergency room, the staff will have fast and easy access to your medical history, helping ensure you get the best care possible. In addition, if you need a prescription, you can have it filled at our on-site pharmacy and have it delivered straight to your home.
We also recommend you download the American Care app and enter your prescription information. That way, if you need to visit our urgent care, you have a convenient list of your current medications, and won’t be prescribed something that may counteract its benefits.
If you need transportation to and from our urgent care, we will provide it for you at no cost. This includes our after-hours service.
Life-threatening emergencies need to be treated at the hospital emergency room, not urgent care. You should call 911 if you have any of the following:

- Changes in speech, such as slurred speech
- New and sudden onset of confusion
