Walk-in Medical Services
If you have an illness or injury that requires prompt attention (like a minor cut or sore throat, for example), Baystate Health urgent care can help. We provide medical services for unexpected illnesses and injuries that cannot wait for a primary care appointment, but do not require an emergency room visit.
We currently have five urgent care locations across western Massachusetts. You can check in online for virtual or in-person visits to urgent care in Feeding Hills, Longmeadow, Westfield, Springfield, and Northampton.
As part of our ongoing efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, we are increasing our use of telehealth video visits.

Urgent Care vs. Emergency Care
An urgent condition is an illness or injury that requires prompt attention but does not require the emergency room.
An emergency condition is one that is life or limb threatening if not immediately treated.
Urgent Care is Convenient
Emergency departments treat patients with the most serious conditions first, so patients with less urgent needs will often wait longer to see a doctor. In most cases, patients at urgent care centers are treated on a first come, first served basis.
Urgent Care is Affordable
We offer affordable, high-quality care with co-pays typically less than emergency room visits. In most cases, your co-pay for care in an urgent care center will be significantly less expensive than your co-pay for care an emergency department. The difference varies by insurance provider, but the difference can be as great as $50 versus $200.
