Our After Hours Urgent Care Locations in Rhode Island
Did You Know?

Your health does not watch the clock. What makes you sick does not make appointments.
When you need help, you need someone to talk to or see when you are sick.
That is why Integra practices offer same-day appointments. That is why Integra has a network of Primary Care Access Centers open for same-day, evening or weekend appointments.
What do I do when I get sick?
First, call your primary care provider’s office and they will assess your concern. If you call after hours, the answering service will locate your doctor.
What do I do in an emergency?
In the event of an emergency such as chest pain, brisk bleeding, shortness of breath, severe pain, or an allergic reaction, call 911 so as not to lose valuable time.
How long should I wait for a call back if it is after hours?
One hour for a routine call. After speaking with you or a family member, your doctor will assess whether to see you in the office, send you to the hospital, or refer you to one of ten Primary Care Access Centers across Rhode Island.
If your physician refers you to a Primary Care Access Center they will communicate with the treating doctor before and/or after your visit to ensure continuity of care.
What do I do if I go to one of these Urgent Care/Walk-In centers?
Tell the receptionist and physician that your primary care doctor is part of Integra. Tell them that you expect the center to send your doctor a faxed report on your tests, diagnosis, and treatment so they can follow up appropriately.
