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.
Ochsner Lafayette General Urgent Care at Ochsner University Hospital & Clinics is Lafayette’s largest urgent care center that accepts Medicaid with NO extra costs. We provide treatment for common illnesses and minor injuries. Our urgent care centers see patients on a “first come first served” basis, with limited wait time. Ochsner Lafayette General has four convenient walk-in clinics in Acadiana.
