Providence Urgent Care introduces new reservation service
February 6, 2020
WALLA WALLA—Providence Urgent Care is now offering a new online service that shows wait times and lets patients reserve their spot in line.
Providence Urgent Care at 1025 S. Second Ave. in Walla Walla offers immediate, non-emergency medical care seven days a week without an appointment. It is a convenient and less costly alternative to the emergency room for medical needs that are urgent, but not life-threatening.
The new online service makes Urgent Care even easier to use. Patients can now visit the website, providence.org/wwurgentcare to see how long the wait is. If they wish, they also can click “Reserve My Spot” to get a spot in the schedule. It’s not a formal appointment, just a place in line, and the times are estimates.
After the patients reserve their approximate time slot, they can go about their day instead of sitting in a waiting room. They will receive a text when they are next in line, and then can go to Urgent Care for treatment. Patients also still are welcome to just walk in as they always have.
