UHealth Jackson Urgent Care Provides Convenient and Comprehensive Urgent Care Services in Miami-Dade County
Jackson Health System and UHealth – the University of Miami Health System have established multiple urgent care centers in convenient locations throughout Miami-Dade County. We specifically chose each site based on a careful analysis designed to ensure that everyone who lives, works, and plays in Miami-Dade County has easy access to exceptional care.
Our centers welcome patients who have a variety of non-life-threatening health conditions that require prompt medical attention. Every UHealth Jackson Urgent Care facility is staffed by board-certified, UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians who are trusted throughout the community due to their excellent credentials and extensive experience.
While we emphasize technical competency at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care, we also understand the importance of bedside manner. We firmly believe that a healthcare provider’s ability to interact effectively and compassionately with patients and their families is paramount. For this reason, we strive to ensure that each patient’s experience is outstanding from not only a medical perspective, but a personal one as well. Our goal is to help our patients feel comfortable, cared for, and emotionally supported as they receive the urgent care they need to become healthy as quickly as possible.
Every UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center in Miami-Dade County has a physician available onsite to provide a wide range of non-emergency healthcare services. We offer flu vaccines, sports physicals, and treatments for many common illnesses and injuries, including:
- Cold and flu
- Ear infections
- Sore throats
- Nausea and vomiting
- Bone fractures
- Strains and sprains
- Cuts and wounds
- Asthma attacks
- Urinary tract infections
- Rashes and other allergic reactions
- Lab testing for Mononucleosis
- College Entrance Physicals
- Sports Physicals with EKG
- Concealed Weapons Permit Physicals (Class G)
Of course, effective treatment requires a proper diagnosis. To ensure fast and accurate test results, we have onsite digital X-ray and lab capabilities at each of our facilities. In addition to undergoing a thorough analysis by an onsite physician, the result of every imaging scan and diagnostic test we perform is read by a specialized UHealth radiologist or pathologist. This is a key factor that distinguishes UHealth Jackson Urgent Care from traditional walk-in clinics, which typically leave these tasks solely to a busy physician on duty.
Also, every patient who receives care at UHealth Jackson Urgent Care gets one bill and makes one payment, rather than receiving separate invoices from multiple providers. In short, we make our payment process as hassle free as possible for our patients.
If you are experiencing a medical emergency, you should call 911 or proceed directly to the nearest emergency room. But, if you have a medical issue that doesn’t require an ER visit, yet can’t wait for an appointment with your primary care physician during regular business hours, you are welcome to visit a nearby UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center. We’re proud to be part of Jackson Health System and UHealth – the University of Miami Health System.
