Beginning August 1, Rusk County Memorial Hospital (RCMH) will be expanding urgent care hours to provide patients options for non-emergency medical care when clinic appointments are not available. The new hours for urgent care services will be Monday through Friday from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and Saturday through Sunday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. Urgent care services are not available on holidays.

Urgent Care, located in the RCMH Emergency Department, provides care for non-life-threatening injuries and illness. These can include back pain, coughs and colds, earaches, minor lacerations, pink eye or conjunctivitis, rising fever, sinus infections, sore throat, sprains and strains and urinary tract infections. Patients will be evaluated for urgent care or emergency care status upon arrival.
