    Urgent Care vs. Walk-In Care

    At Sutter Health we want to make sure you have access to care, when and where you need it. That’s why we offer different care models that extend past your primary care office. Whether you have an ear infection, a broken arm or a life-threatening emergency, we’ve got the care you need. And while the scope of care may overlap at these locations, we’ve created the general guide below to help you choose the care location that's right for you.
