UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk Has Extended Hours
UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk offers extended hours, which means we’re there for you if you need prompt medical attention for a non-life-threatening illness or injury. This is particularly important for those times when your primary care physician is unavailable. Of course, you could turn to a hospital emergency room in these situations, but you’d likely have to endure a long wait and an exorbitant bill. With UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk, you don’t have to pay an “emergency price” to receive prompt treatment for a non-emergency condition.
Another alternative for receiving urgent care after hours is an in-store clinic or doc-in-a-box.* But, UHealth Jackson Urgent Care – Country Walk offers an important advantage over these options.

*The term “doc-in-a-box” is often used informally to describe a small healthcare clinic located in a drugstore, supermarket, mall, or freestanding building. These facilities, which are typically staffed by nurses or general family practice physicians during set hours, provide basic medical services to patients who walk in with minor health issues.
