Walk-in Care

Essentia Health offers walk-in care for a wide range of medical needs—no appointment needed. Your choice of care depends on where you live and the severity of your condition.

We have three levels of walk-in care—basic, intermediate, and advanced. For example, emergency medicine is advanced care for severe or life-threatening situations, such as abdominal pain or chest pain.

If you have severe or life-threatening symptoms, call 911 or seek emergency care.

If this isn't an emergency, you should first see if your primary care provider has a same-day appointment. Not sure what type of walk-in care is right for you? If you're an Essentia patient, call our Nurse Care Line.
