Family Care Network has three urgent care clinics, in Bellingham, Lynden and Mount Vernon. All urgent care locations are open to FCN and non-FCN patients, and we accept most major medical insurance plans. We can also see you via telemedicine. Go to On-Demand Telemedicine>> to learn more.
Urgent Care hours are Monday-Friday, 1pm-9pm and Saturday-Sunday, 9am-5pm. We can see you via telemedicine starting at 8am, Monday-Friday. All locations are closed Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
Urgent care is for non-emergency medical issues that need immediate attention. Urgent Care is a lower-cost alternative to the emergency room, with shorter wait times and a calmer setting to treat issues such as:
- Colds, cough, sore throat, fever and flu symptoms
- Work-related injuries
- Ear or sinus pain
- Scrapes or lacerations
- Urinary discomfort or symptoms
- Minor burns
- Pediatric illness and asthma
- Sprains, strains, minor bruises and possible fractures
Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis (no appointments). Lab and x-ray services are available on site.
Non-urgent appointments, such as sports physicals, CDL certification, and vaccinations, must be scheduled with your regular doctor.
Life-threatening emergencies should be seen at the hospital, or dial 911. This includes difficulty breathing, heart attack/stroke, extremely high fever, severe trauma or open fracture (broken bone protruding through the skin), uncontrolled bleeding, poisoning, major burns and other serious medical issues.
