What services does Aspen Medical Center Urgent Care provide?
If you have an urgent medical need and are unable to see your primary care provider, we are here to help! At Aspen Medical Center, you can make an urgent care appointment to decrease wait times or simply walk-in to be seen. With on-site Xray and point-of-care testing, our clinic locations in Santa Fe and Espanola are open 7 days a week to address your urgent health concerns, such as:
- acute respiratory infections (sinusitis, influenza, bronchitis, etc)
- conjunctivitis (“pink eye”)
- sore throat
- vomiting and/or diarrhea
- urinary tract infections
- skin rashes
- minor eye injuries or corneal abrasions
- STD testing
- cuts and lacerations
- sprains, strains, and minor fractures
- minor burns
We also offer school/sports physicals, vaccinations, lab testing and referrals to specialists when appropriate.
We aim to provide efficient, compassionate, and high-quality service as a convenient and less expensive alternative to the emergency room. However, there are times when seeking medical treatment at an outpatient urgent care clinic such as Aspen Medical Center might not be appropriate.
