People who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms can call 913-574-2273 (CARE) or visit kansashealthsystem.com/urgentcare to learn if an urgent care visit would be right for them. You may also use MyChart, our patient portal, to access locations and wait times. Day, evening and weekend hours are available at our 4 urgent care locations.
If you are experiencing the following symptoms, you should get a COVID-19 test:

If you’ve had close contact with someone who received a positive COVID-19 test in the last 14 days, you should also consider getting a COVID-19 test. After completing the test, a COVID-19 clinic nurse will call or send a MyChart message within 48 hours to communicate your test results. If you do not have a MyChart account, sign up now.
