ucclogoWVU Urgent Care, designated as a Certified Urgent Care by the Urgent Care Association of America, provides prompt medical care for minor illnesses or injuries. We see patients who need immediate attention but don’t have a life-threatening condition that requires an emergency room visit.

If your doctor’s office is closed or you just can’t wait for an appointment, visit WVU Medicine Urgent Care. Our walk-in clinics are open daily, no appointments necessary.

We have four convenient locations:

  • Suncrest* – Morgantown
  • Evansdale* – Morgantown
  • WVU Medicine Outpatient Center – Fairmont
  • McHenry, MD

Our team can treat a variety of health-related issues, including sore throats and flu symptoms, strains and sprains, minor wounds requiring stitches, respiratory infections, and much more. In addition, as part of the WVU Medicine family, we have access to a full range of healthcare experts.

*Flu shots are now available at all locations. The cost is $25.

Not Appropriate for Urgent Care

In more serious situations, such as a stroke, heart attack, severe bleeding, head injury or other major trauma, go straight to the nearest emergency room. Other critical conditions include severe abdominal pain; sudden dizziness, weakness, or loss of coordination or balance; sudden blurred vision or loss of vision; deep cuts or bleeding that won’t stop; and loss of consciousness.

Medications available on site to Urgent Care patients

WVU Urgent Care patients can buy 10 commonly prescribed medications at the clinic instead of leaving with a written prescription. A patient can buy one course of the prescribed drugs in stock, which include antibiotics such as amoxicillin and penicillin.

  • Each prescription costs $10.
  • No billing to insurance companies is done.
  • Refills are not available.

Patients are given receipts to submit to insurance companies for reimbursement. Patients who need refills or who may need another medication to treat their illness will need another doctor visit. Urgent Care does not sell prescription narcotics.

NOTE: Medications not available at the McHenry Location.
