Urgent Care

MedStar PromptCare

Please note: if you are facing a life-threatening situation, call 911, or visit the emergency department at the hospital nearest you.

MedStar PromptCare offers medical care for most illnesses and injuries as well as physicals for school sports participation. The providers of MedStar PromptCare provide care to people of all ages and no appointment is ever needed. We provide convenient and coordinated care when you need it, from a name you can trust.

What Is Urgent Care?

Urgent care centers provide walk-in, extended hour access to medical care for acute illness and injury. These centers can provide care that is beyond the scope or availability of the typical primary care practice or retail clinic. MedStar PromptCare will communicate with the patient’s primary care provider, while helping them get the care they need, when they need it.
