Injuries and accidents usually happen without warning and may require seeing a doctor within a few hours. If you or your child's doctor isn’t immediately available and the injury doesn’t require emergency room attention, visit one of Sutter’s urgent care centers located throughout Northern California. Our urgent care centers provide highly trained doctors, nurses and support staff who can quickly assess an injury and provide care. Urgent care centers are more convenient, less expensive and frequently less crowded than hospital emergency rooms. They are open evenings, weekends and holidays, when many doctors’ offices are closed. Visit an urgent care center if you think you or your child needs to see a doctor within 24 hours.
