Urgent Care

Our Urgent Care department is here to meet community members when they need same-day treatment for sickness or conditions that are not life-threatening, but need attention. You can reach out to your primary care provider’s office at 617-825-9660 to request a call back.

Below are some examples of when to visit primary care, urgent care, or the emergency department. Of course, every case is different and these are just examples. If you feel your life is in danger, call 911 and get to a hospital emergency department immediately.
