Sick/urgent care

If you have a life-threatening issue, call 911!

Quik Kids urgent-care clinic

We get it – kids can get sick suddenly and often it’s a concerning illness or injury, but not severe enough to require a visit to the emergency room.

My child is sick or hurt – Should I call NWPC or go to the emergency department?

At our Quik Kids walk-in clinic, we offer care for a variety of acute injuries and illnesses that are not life -threatening, but still need to be seen immediately.

Some of the common conditions we treat include:

  • Ear infections
  • Sore throat
  • Minor cuts, bumps and bruises
  • Fevers
  • Rashes
  • Allergies
  • Minor burns
  • Sprains

Some complaints, such as headaches lasting for two months, abdominal pain for a year, and behavioral issues, may be beyond what a walk-in clinic can address. With those issues, which often require far more time than we can provide in an urgent-care setting, please schedule a regular office visit with one of our providers. Our walk-in clinic is open from 12 to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.

Please note that our walk-in/urgent-care clinic is available for established NWPC patients only.

Medicaid participants – Attention!
  • Participants may receive age-appropriate and culturally appropriate services.
  • Participants may ask for a qualified interpreter and translated material at no cost.
  • Participants may request to receive information and help in the language or format of their choice.

Beginning April 1, 2023
, NWPC will no longer require patients or family members to wear face masks, except:

  • Patients or family members with respiratory symptoms such as cough, runny nose, or fever, or who’ve had a confirmed exposure to COVID or influenza. These individuals will need to wear masks before entering the clinic or they can check in from their car.
  • Patients with suspicious rashes that could be chickenpox or measles must remain in their cars and check in from there.

Our Sunday walk-in clinic is open again for the winter season, 4-8 p.m. in Building A. There, we treat patients on a first-come, first-served basis, but we also triage patients according to severity. While we strive to keep wait times to a minimum, we cannot guarantee how long your wait may be and appreciate your patience.
