Local Clinic Information
59th Medical Wing Urgent Care Center
Location: Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center Basement
People suffering serious illness or injury should go to the closest emergency department. If you go to the UCC with a serious illness or injury, you will be sent or transported by ambulance to a hospital emergency department, and this could delay your care. The UCC, serving walk-in patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week, is an option for common acute minor medical problems when the patient cannot obtain an appointment with a primary care provider or a clinic is closed. The UCC staff treats minor illnesses and injuries, including flu, fever, earaches, nausea, rashes, animal and insect bites, minor bone fractures and minor cuts that require stitches. The UCC is staffed by military and civilian family practice physicians, physician assistants, nurses and medical technicians. The UCC provides open access care for all eligible Department of Defense beneficiaries.
