When should I go to Walk-In Care?
When an injury or illness happens, it is best to make an appointment with your primary care provider. But we know that is not always possible, especially if it occurs after hours, on weekends or during the holidays.

For minor illnesses or injuries, Grant Regional’s Walk-In Care can be a convenient solution! Conveniently located right in our Emergency Department, it’s open during early morning hours before work or school even starts. It is also open evening and weekend hours — when most clinics are closed.

Common problems that are appropriate to be seen in Walk-In Care include:

  • Scrapes, bruises
  • Skin rashes
  • Colds
  • Insect bites, stings
  • Fever
  • Sore throat
  • Earaches, toothaches
  • Pink eye


Patients won’t have to decide if they need Walk-In Care or Emergency Care. Each patient will be evaluated and an appropriate level of care for their injury or illness will be determined. Patients are reminded that even though they come to the hospital during Walk-In Care hours, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the injury or illness meets Walk-In Care criteria; therefore they may be charged as an ER visit.


If it’s determined that your problem is minor in nature, it will be taken care of at a charge less than the cost of an emergency room visit. A typical Walk-In Care charge does not include the price of x-rays, lab work, medications, or other ancillary services. You deserve the best care possible. If your medical problem is more serious than you thought, advanced care from the Emergency Room staff is readily available.

Walk-In Care Hours:
Monday through Friday, 6 to 8 a.m. and 3 to 10 p.m.
Weekends/holidays, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
