Urgent Care Centre

MHC’s Urgent Care Centre opened in 1998 as a made-in-Manitoba program; the first of its kind in Canada.

Urgent Care specializes in handling non-life-threatening medical emergencies, providing assessment and treatment for urgent health concerns. It plays an important role in the Winnipeg Health Region’s emergency program by helping nearly 40,000 people a year.

Minor accidents, pain and illness can happen anytime... Urgent Care is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

In addition to health assessment and treatment, patients also have access to diagnostic testing and other health-care disciplines such as social work, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nutrition, pharmacy and respiratory therapy.

Urgent Care is also linked to the Buhler Eye Care Centre: eye patients with urgent conditions are referred to an eye specialist as necessary.

How long will I wait ?

We try to provide the BEST service possible. People are seen in order of their condition. Your wait will depend on:
  • how sick you are.
  • how sick other patients in Urgent Care are.
  • the number of patients in Urgent Care.
  • available treatment room and equipment that meets your needs.

The facilities at Misericordia's Urgent Care Centre can:

  • provide diagnostic testing such as lab tests and x-rays
  • set and cast broken bones
  • clean and stitch cuts
  • provide counselling and referral for problems related to life stresses
  • provide immediate assessment and treatment of any non life-threatening health problem

Our emphasis is on providing the best treatment possible.
