Urgent Care

Urgent Care 2019-02-21T13:56:48-08:00

If you have an injury or illness that needs immediate attention but is not serious enough to require an emergency room visit, you can get attention on the same day. You should always call your clinic first, to see if you can get in to see your regular doctor.

The Adult Urgent Care on the Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG) hospital campus moved on February 21, 2019 from Building 80 to Building 5, 1st floor (unit 1E).

If you are experiencing a mental health crisis, we have services available to support you and your family.
