Meeting a Growing Need for After-Hours Care
With the ever-increasing time it takes to be seen in an emergency room, Franciscan ExpressCare provides patients and families with non-life threatening cases to be seen and diagnosed by a healthcare provider in a timely manner. Franciscan Health has identified a need in the communities we serve and offer an alternative choice to meet these healthcare needs.
Franciscan ExpressCare has convenient evening and weekend hours. No appointment needed - just walk in.

Urgent Care vs. the ER
If you have a serious condition – stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma – go straight to the nearest emergency room. Don’t take a chance with anything life-threatening. The emergency room is the best place for these and other critical conditions:
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
- Severe bleeding or head trauma
- Loss of consciousness
- Sudden loss of vision or blurred vision
- Serious or severe injuries, digit or extremity amputation
- Burns or electrical shock
- Altered mental status
- Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
