How do I know where to go?
Walk-in Care, like our facility in Greencastle, offers treatment for common, non-life threatening conditions, such as colds, coughs, and flu symptoms.
Urgent Care is similar, but offers expanded service hours and enhanced services for treatment of an illness or condition that requires care within 24 hours to avoid further complications.
If you are experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, loss of consciousness, severe headache, severe abdominal pain, or severe bleeding, please go to the nearest hospital emergency department or call 911.
