Immediate Care Centers

When to Visit the Immediate Care Centers

Sometimes the unexpected happens. When it does, it’s good to know that our Immediate Care Centers are close to home. Count on us to treat injuries and illnesses that require immediate attention but aren’t emergencies — usually in one hour or less. Our Immediate Care Centers are located within the Elmhurst Memorial Addison and Lombard Health Centers. Patients are registered and treated in comfortable, private rooms by specially trained nurses and board-certified emergency physicians.

The Immediate Care Centers are walk-in clinics, which means there is no appointment necessary. We encourage you to follow-up with your primary care physician after your Immediate Care visit. Need a physician? Call CareMatch at (331)221-CARE or click here to find a doctor.
