UHealth Jackson Urgent Care Centers Offer Extended Hours in Miami-Dade County
To make urgent care services available during extended hours, Jackson Health System and the University of Miami have established a network of UHealth Jackson Urgent Care centers throughout Miami-Dade County. We realize that typical emergency rooms are not adequately set up to provide certain patients – specifically, those who need urgent medical attention but aren't facing true emergencies – with the care they need without a long wait or large expense. Of course, in many of these situations, a primary care physician can provide appropriate care. However, it is not always possible to schedule a timely appointment with a primary care physician. UHealth Jackson Urgent Care is specifically designed to fill this gap.
Allergic reactions, ear infections, broken fingers, and other common illnesses and injuries can't be counted on to occur during most doctors' regular office hours. Recognizing that many people need urgent care after hours, we have staffed each UHealth Jackson Urgent Care with board-certified, UHealth – the University of Miami Health System physicians who are on site in the mornings, evenings, and on weekends. These experienced and trusted medical professionals are available at convenient times to provide high-quality health care to address a wide variety of non-life-threatening medical conditions.
Both emergency rooms and urgent care centers are often open during extended hours. However, as compared to a typical ER in Miami-Dade County, UHealth Jackson Urgent Care centers offer several advantages for patients who need prompt treatment for non-emergency conditions.
- Shorter wait times
- Lower out-of-pocket costs
- Physicians with compassionate bedside manners
- Streamlined billing
- Exceptional customer service
Urgent care services are also available during the expanded hours. Unlike a typical doc-in-a-box,* UHealth Jackson Urgent Care emphasizes not only accessibility, but also the exceptional level of health care that Jackson Health System and UHealth – the University of Miami Health System are well known for.
If you are experiencing a true medical emergency, such as a possible loss of life, limb, or vision, we urge you to call 911 immediately or head straight to the nearest ER. For all other medical issues that can't wait for an appointment with your primary care physician, you can visit a UHealth Jackson Urgent Care center in Miami-Dade County, where we are proud to provide urgent care services during extended hours.
*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.
