Urgent care

Care when you need it. Urgent care is an alternative to the emergency room for non-life-threatening medical issues such as the flu, pink eye, rash, sore throat, urinary tract infections, or a cold.


Emergency room alternatives

For non-urgent medical concerns, there are options besides the emergency room. Urgent care centers and virtual care are options for you and your family to get quick, quality care. There are many urgent care centers available throughout Puget Sound and a 24-hour nurse care line to help in your time of need. And care is available online too with Embright's virtual care. Care is always within reach whether that is in-person or online. 

Virtual urgent care 

Get care anytime – day or night. As an Embright member, you have access to a variety of convenient virtual urgent care options to meet your urgent medical needs. Through any of the virtual urgent care options, you can get access to board-certified physicians or nurse practitioners on your smartphone, tablet, or computer for an audio or video call. Providers can assess medical needs, suggest treatments, recommend home remedies, and write a prescription.
