T.J. Urgent Care

Sometimes, care can't wait.

T.J. Urgent Care is for people who need immediate care, but do not require a visit the emergency room.

T.J. Urgent Care at the T.J. Samson Health Pavilion opens early and stays open late. It's even open on weekends and most holidays. Experienced, caring staff and providers are there to address illnesses and injuries with the same level of quality you expect from us, at a lower cost than at the emergency room. T.J. Urgent Care helps reduce wait time for all patients by providing them a more direct route to the exact care they need.
