Need an appointment right away?

SCHC's Urgent Care is here to fill the gap in primary care and the ER. We are here to help you when you are sick, hurt or cannot see your clinician right away. An urgent healthcare need is one that requires quick care (within 24-48 hours). It is not the place to go if you have a life threatening condition.   

Urgent Care can help you with needs like: cuts, minor burns, sprains, sore throats, earaches, coughs, rashes, STDs, urinary tract issues like needing to pee often or burning when you do, vaccinations, lab work and x-rays.

If you don't know what type of care you need, please call your normal clinician right away.

At Urgent Care you don’t need an appointment. If you'd like, you can make an appointment by calling: (530) 246-5710. In the summer it's even easier to get an Urgent Care appointment. We'll try first to get you in to see your own clinician. If we can't get you in to see your clinician will do our best to get you seen by someone on their team,

Here are the Urgent Care hours:

  • Monday to Thursday: 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  • Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
  • We are closed on Sunday.
  • We are closed on most holidays.
