CONVENIENT CARE: AN EXTENSION OF PRIMARY CARE OFFERED TO EXISTING BAYSTATE HEALTH PATIENTS
If your urgent condition can’t wait for a regular primary care appointment with your Baystate Health Primary Care Provider (PCP), Convenient Care offers same-day, walk-in care with extended hours to fit your schedule. As part of Baystate Health, our Convenient Care locations use the same electronic records database, coordinating care with your Baystate Health PCP.
Patients may walk in for urgent care services during operating hours. If you have a fever, cough or shortness of breath, or concerns about COVID-19 exposure, please do not visit Convenient Care before talking to your provider, as additional testing may be needed prior to an in-person appointment. Instead, call Convenient Care for medical guidance.
Please note, Convenient Care may be closed to walk ins and new registrations after 3 p.m. based on capacity. If arriving after 3 p.m., please call ahead.
