Urgent Care

Our ABQ Health Partners Urgent Care Centers offer convenient, walk-in medical care from board-certified providers to patients of all ages. We welcome out-of-town visitors, new residents who do not yet have a doctor and patients who simply  cannot get immediate access to their primary care provider. You can expect compassionate, high-quality medical care from our experienced clinical team at a time and location that is convenient for you. 
Each of our Urgent Care locations provides the convenience of on-site X-rays, laboratory testing, and a full-service pharmacy. If you require specialty care after seeing our urgent care providers, then our ABQ Health Partners physicians  and medical staff are ready to provide you with quality treatment in more than 40 medical and surgical specialties.
ABQ Health Partners currently operates two Urgent Care facilities with locations at Journal Center, Montgomery and Rio Rancho. Recently, ABQ Health Partners expanded Urgent Care Center hours to meet the needs of patients and to help keep  them healthy and out of the hospital.  Journal Center and Rio Rancho Urgent Care Center locations are open seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

You should use our Urgent Care Centers for any non-life threatening medical illness or injury that you feel requires immediate attention. Going to the emergency room for issues that are less serious can slow down the emergency room’s ability  to help people with more serious illnesses or injuries, and may result in unnecessary out-of-pocket costs to you.
