What We Do Not Treat

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Fainting, sudden dizziness or weakness
  • Changes in vision
  • Trouble walking
  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Severe and sudden pain
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Head injury
  • Major bone break
  • Suicidal thoughts, feelings

What To Expect

Your total time at MediQuick should not exceed 45 minutes. Many patients are out in less than 20 minutes.

We handled more than 31,300 medical visits in 2015 - an average of 86 every day of the year -- for everything from a sore throat or rash to X-rays and laboratory services or broken bones treated by an orthopedic surgeon through our affiliation with MidState Medical Center.

You're not going to find that breadth of service at every urgent care center. That's why we received a Certified Urgent Care designation from the Urgent Care Association of America, which distinguishes MediQuick as a true Urgent Care center.

What To Bring

If you're already a Hartford HealthCare patient, MediQuick's medical staff will find your health history instantly in Epic, our electronic records software with embedded clinical intelligence that ensures clinical decisions will be based on the most current information. As always, retain your insurance card wherever you go.

Patient Satisfaction

In a recent patient-satisfaction survey by Press Ganey, MediQuick scored in the 97th percentile nationally, 99th percentile regionally and 96th percentile for hospital-owned urgent care facilities - always registering at least in the 89th percentile in every category.

Patients like MediQuick for more than high-quality medical attention, on-site X-ray capabilities and fast in-and-out times: A visit to urgent care often costs substantially less than a visit to an emergency room.
