Sometimes you or your family need to see a doctor right away, but you may not require a trip to the emergency department. If that's the case, you can rely on The University of Kansas Health System's urgent care team, which never requires an appointment. Our advanced urgent care services are provided by experienced physician assistants and advance practice registered nurses. Services include treating injuries and medical conditions, as well as running diagnostic tests.
Our urgent care centers in the Kansas City area, as well as our urgent care virtual visits, allow you to see a provider without an appointment. You should use urgent care for medical problems that require attention, but are not serious enough to require a trip to the emergency room. These medical problems might include respiratory difficulties associated with asthma and allergies, sore throats, coughs, fever, rashes, minor injuries, headaches, vomiting and flu-like symptoms.
Urgent care telehealth video visits are available for residents of Kansas and Missouri. You will be asked to provide current medical and insurance information. Learn more about telehealth and how to prepare for telehealth visits.

If you are setting up an urgent care video visit for a minor, you will need to create a MyChart account for them or request proxy access to their current account. Email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. This process typically takes 2-3 business days. Meanwhile, seek in-person urgent care or call 574-CARE for assistance.
