Urgent care is available if you have an injury or illness requiring immediate care, but not serious enough to require an emergency room visit.
If so, your first step is to call your clinic.
During business hours
When you call, follow the prompts to speak with our Nurse Advice Line. Nurses are available to provide you with care Monday through Friday from 8:00AM-5:00PM. If needed, your nurse may schedule you with an appointment at your clinic or with a provider over the telephone.
If you are a patient at our 6M Children’s Health Center, your call will be transferred to a provider in clinic to help you.
When your clinic is closed
When you call, you will be transferred to an after-hours service. If needed, an on-call doctor from your clinic will be available to speak with you.
While it is always best to contact your primary care clinic first for urgent care needs, we also have three Urgent Care locations available. The Urgent Care Center and the Children’s Health Center, which are both located at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, also welcome anyone in San Francisco needing urgent medical care.
This Center cares for patients 18 years and older. You do not need to be a patient within one of our primary care clinics. The Center is located at 995 Potrero Ave, Building 80, 1st floor on the campus of Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital. The Center is open weekday nights, weekends, and holidays.
