What is urgent care? What makes it different than emergency care? The line can sometimes seem blurred.
You will always find top-notch emergency care at Carilion Clinic if and when you need it but more often than not it’s likely that your situation can be better served through VelocityCare, our new urgent care service.
VelocityCare, Urgent Care by Carilion
Put simply, VelocityCare bridges the gap between your primary care doctor and the hospital emergency room. When an appointment with your regular physician isn’t possible, but you need immediate attention for a non-life threatening issue, VelocityCare is your best bet.
With extended hours seven days a week, and no appointment necessary, we can provide expert medical care that is focused on doing whatever is necessary to help you to feel better and get healthy. We are also close by, with locations open in Roanoke, Christiansburg, Daleville, and Westlake.
As a part of the Carilion family, our VelocityCare centers automatically connect your personal electronic medical record to our network of physicians, making it easy for you to follow up with your regular doctor.
