Superior Urgent Care Services for Frederick County & Beyond

At Frederick Regional Health System, we supply immediate care services for our patients. When you have need of medical attention but your condition does not constitute an emergency, visit our immediate care program. Our staff provides prompt, professional attention for those needs that fall somewhere between a medical emergency and a need that can wait for a doctor’s appointment. Our urgent care services are your alternative to an emergency room visit, where you can still expect the care you need, when it counts, with no appointment or referral required.
