MCHENRY, MD. – The WVU Medicine Urgent Care in McHenry has received the Accredited Urgent Care designation, the highest level of distinction for urgent care centers, from the Urgent Care Association.  

WVU Medicine’s centers provide patients with walk-in, extended-hour medical attention with licensed providers for a large scope of medical conditions and have met all of the Urgent Care Association’s established standards and criteria for quality of patient care, safety, and scope of services.

The healthcare environment is changing, and it is becoming more and more important for patients to understand their treatment options.

Urgent care is a convenient and viable option for medical conditions that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment with a primary care physician. WVU Medicine Urgent Care accepts unscheduled, walk-in patients during all hours of operation.

When a medical condition cannot be handled by a patient’s regular doctor – such as unexpected cuts, burns, sprains, or fractures that do not require a visit to the emergency department, WVU Medicine’s urgent care centers are equipped with x-ray, laboratory services, and licensed providers are always available to perform minor procedures like casting and suturing. 

Urgent care fills the gap between primary care and hospital emergency rooms, offering increased convenience and cost savings.  

With its accreditation, WVU Medicine and the Urgent Care Association demonstrate their commitment toward providing patients with access to quality care of the highest level.

WVU Medicine Urgent Care is located at 24441 Garrett Highway in McHenry. It is open 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday. It is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas day.
