When your medical needs are urgent but not life-threatening, such as a sprained ankle or minor cut, an Urgent Care center can provide a closer, faster, simpler and less expensive alternative to the emergency room (ER). Visiting the ER for minor injuries or illnesses could end up costing you more than if your care was provided at an Urgent Care clinic or doctor's office. Shannon offers four Urgent Care Clinics, giving you access to convenient medical care close to home.
