IVCH Urgent Care

The care you need, when you need it.

What to do when a sore throat hits after work Tuesday, heart attack strikes at midnight or a weekend mishap means stitches? Thanks to IVCH, you have options. Our urgent care facilities provide solutions to those unexpected illnesses and injuries you have no control over.  Wait times at these facilities are typically lower than at the Emergency Room and in many cases, the visit will be less expensive.
