​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Urgent Care​

​​​​​​The Christ Hospital Urgent Care provides a streamlined care option for minor injuri​es and illnesses to bridge the gap between your primary care provider and the emergency room.

We see patients ages 18 months and up with convenient locations in Fort Wright, Green Township, and Madisonville (Red Bank).

Our physicians and advanced practitioners are all board certified to provide comprehensive, convenient care when you need it most.

Urgent Care Hours

​Monday through Friday:  7am - 7pm

Saturday and Sunday: 9am - 3pm

Hours subject to change on major holidays

  • You may occasionally experience longer than average wait times due to high volumes or widespread illnesses in the community.

  • During periods of high patient volumes, we may have to limit new patients earlier in order to care for those waiting to see a provider.

When is it time to go to urgent care?  

Urgent care is generally an extension of your primary care physician’s office, while the emergency room provides life or limb-saving care that requires a hospital setting. 

  • Call 911 or go to the ER immediatley if you or a loved one are experiencing a medical emergency. 

  • If you are experiencing illnesses (like flu symptoms), a minor injury or symptoms that you would normally discuss with your primary care physician, our urgent care specialists are here to help you feel better quickly. 

Visiting one of our urgent care locations can also help keep your costs low. An urgent care visit typically has lower co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses than the ER. We accept many commercial insurances and offer multiple payment options such as cash, check, credit card, medical savings plans and debit cards.
