Urgent Care - KOAA.com | Continuous News | Colorado Springs and Pueblo

An estimated 35% of emergency room visits could be treated faster and more affordably at an urgent care clinic. Our goal is to bridge the challenge of seeing a primary physician on short notice with a lower cost alternative to an ER visit.

Urgent cares are an ideal option for illnesses or injuries that don’t warrant a trip to the emergency room, but are too important to wait for a primary care appointment. UCHealth Urgent Care clinics provide treatment for acute health care needs such as sprains and strains, cuts and scrapes, rashes, insect bites, asthma, colds, flu, sore throat and stomachaches.

Walk in today for quick and compassionate healthcare. We have four Colorado Springs locations available to treat you.
