How quickly can I expect to be seen? It is our goal to see and treat patients as quickly as possible. However, during peak hours of operation and when acute patients are being treated, wait times may be longer than usual. Patients with extreme situations (cardiac problems, severe lacerations, etc) who arrive during hours of operation will be seen immediately.

Follow-up Care If you do not already have an existing relationship with a physician, we will be happy to help you find one through our University HealthService Center. Simply call 706/SER-VICE (737-8423) in the Augusta area or toll free1/800/476-SERV (7378) outside Augusta, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You will speak with a registered nurse who can help you locate a physician to fit your specific needs. By calling, you’ll have access to more than 450 highly skilled physicians who practice at University Hospital.

Our Philosophy is Simple: Our Patients Are Our Priority Putting the needs of our patients and their families first is our number one priority. We try to keep these needs in mind in every aspect of how we manage our facilities and deliver the highest quality health care possible. If there is anything we can do to improve your experience at either of our locations, please feel free to let us know.

When should you use a Prompt Care facility? Go to Prompt Care when you and your family need treatment for urgent health care needs. Prompt Care is a walk-in facility with no appointment necessary. You may see a Prompt Care physician for conditions such as minor cuts, sprains, infections, sore throats, broken bones, intestinal complaints, insect bites, etc. If you’re uncertain about when you should seek treatment at Prompt Care, call ASK-A-NURSE at SER-VICE (737-8423), or 1-800/476-SERV (7378), 24 hours a day to speak with a registered nurse who can advise you.

What services are available? In addition to the treatment of minor injuries and illnesses, outpatient lab and X-ray services are available on-site. Physicians at Prompt Care will also perform school sports physicals.

What types of health care professionals are available at a Prompt Care facility to render care? Unlike other minor treatment facilities, you will always be evaluated and treated at Prompt Care by a board-certified physician. Other professional staff includes RN, LPN and Radiologic Technologist.
