The Christ Hospital Urgent Care provides fast, convenient assessment and access to a regional network of expert physicians and services provided by Cincinnati’s Most Preferred Hospital. Our doctors and nurses bring emergency medicine expertise to your urgent medical situations, but with lower cost than an emergency department visit.
We’re located just off I-71 at the Red Bank exit in Cincinnati and have extended hours during the week and on weekends to allow you the flexibility of finding care when you need it (walk-ins are welcome). Our express check-in, as well as on-site imaging and lab services make the diagnosis and treatment process as convenient as possible.
Our services bridge the gap between those of your doctor’s office and the full scale services of the emergency department. Our doctors are board-certified and have experience in either an emergency department or urgent care setting.
A trip to Urgent Care means lower co-pays, or out- of- pocket expenses, than a visit to the emergency department (ED). The estimated cost of an urgent care visit is one-third to one-half that of an ED visit. We accept a wide range of commercial insurance and offer multiple payment options including cash, credit cards, medical savings plans, debit cards and checks.
We offer on-site diagnostic imaging through The Christ Hospital
Imaging Center. Our viewing station allows images to be reviewed by urgent care physicians immediately and interpreted by a physician specialized in radiology within 30 minutes. Routine X-rays are available during all business hours. Computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound are also available if scheduling permits. Some imaging may require off-site scheduling. If so, our staff will gladly help secure a time and place that works best for you.
On-site lab services
Lab tests for strep throat, pregnancy, mononucleosis (mono), influenza (flu), urinalysis, hemoglobin and electrolytes are available on-site, and results are often available within 10 minutes. More complex tests are sent to an outside lab and are generally reported to you within 24 to 48 hours. Tests that are more complex include: complete blood count (CBC), metabolic profile, liver, thyroid, prothrombin time, hepatitis, stool analysis, sexually transmitted disease (STD) swabs, and cultures of the blood, urine or wound.
