Urgent Care Update

We know medical issues don’t just pop up during normal business hours and deciding whether your illness or injury is a true emergency can be hard when you feel sick or are in pain. While the hospital’s emergency department is prepared for every kind of medical emergency, Ochsner Lafayette General’s Urgent Care Centers are a great place to visit for medical needs that are urgent, but not emergent. 

Find Urgent Care Now

Schedule an urgent care arrival time online through the MyOchsner mobile app.

Find Urgent Care Now allows patients to check in quickly using e-Pre-Check and pay in advance before your arrival time. Ochsner Urgent Care locations operate on a first-come, first-served basis. Patients scheduling via Find Urgent Care Now do not skip the waiting line, nor will they be seen ahead of individuals in the waiting room or impact others' wait times. If there is an increase of patients with emergency conditions, your projected treatment time may be delayed.
