Same-day Appointments and After-hours Urgent Care

Same-day Appointments

We recognize that unanticipated health care needs may arise. To help you find care when you need it, we accommodate same-day appointments at USC Healthcare Center 2 (HC2). A call to the office is all that is necessary to provide the highest quality health care for your unpredicted needs.

To make a same-day appointment, call: (323) 442-5100.

After-hours Urgent Care

Our Evaluation and Treatment Clinic (ETC) at Keck Hospital of USC offers urgent, non-emergency services to treat medical issues such as a urinary tract infection or a complication from a chronic illness.

ETC visits are by appointment. Your Keck Medicine doctor will refer you to the ETC, where staff have access to your medical records, as well as to laboratory and radiographic equipment, so you can have lab work done or get an MRI, CT scan or X-ray. The ETC is open 24 hours a day and staffed by either an emergency medicine or internal medicine physician.

How to be seen at the ETC:

  1. For urgent medical issues, call: (800) USC-CARE or (323) 442-5100.
  2. Ask to speak to the on-call physician to discuss your medical concerns.
  3. If necessary, the on-call physician will refer you to the ETC for evaluation.

If you need immediate emergency care, please call 911 or visit the emergency room at USC Verdugo Hills Hospital or your local emergency department.
