Reintroduction to Urgent Care

When a new school semester rolls around, you and your child will likely catch whatever bug can be found in the classroom. Knowing when a child needs cough and cold medicine or more immediate attention can be tricky.


Urgent Care is the place for minor conditions, such as earaches, sore throats, and urinary tract infections. Getting sick doesn’t always happen on a 9 to 5 basis, so neither should getting well. You can think of Urgent Care as your doctor’s office when your doctor’s office is closed. Urgent care is available at Southwest Health in Platteville Monday through Friday from 5 pm to 10 pm and on weekends and holidays from 8 am to 8 pm.


Urgent care is different from Emergency Care. They do not treat life-threatening conditions. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or your local emergency services, or go to the nearest emergency room. 


Southwest Health’s Urgent Care is the place to come for:

  • Insect bites
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Earaches
  • Minor infections
  • Minor rashes and burns
  • Sore throat or cough
  • Sprains and strains
  • Urinary tract infections


All ages are welcome. You don’t need to be a Southwest Health patient. If you are looking for immediate care during the Urgent Care hours, Southwest Health can help! No appointment is needed at 1400 Eastside Road in Platteville, Wisconsin.


Across the tristate and at local hospitals, everyone is seeing a significant increase in the number of people needing immediate care and being unable to wait weeks for an appointment. If you don’t have a primary care provider, like a third of Americans, relying on urgent care can be your only option to be seen by a provider. Urgent care providers still care for community members with urgent and immediate needs like heart attacks or broken limbs. But there’s another way. 


Walk-in care is becoming increasingly common as more people seek immediate attention from a provider. This is a more accessible option for people needing assistance and diagnosis for minor conditions, such as earaches, sore throats, sports injuries, and urinary tract infections. 

Getting sick doesn’t always happen during business hours, so neither should getting well. To utilize Southwest Health’s walk-in care, you don’t need to be a Southwest Health patient; all ages can be seen. 


Southwest Health’s walk-in Kieler Clinic is available Monday through Friday from 4 to 8 pm and Saturdays from 8 am until 3 pm. Helping providers diagnose patients while at their appointment, the Kieler Clinic lab and radiology team assists the providers in giving patients their needed results in real-time.

You deserve local access to great family medical care at every stage of your life, and you and your family can receive that care at 3695 Prism Lane in Kieler, Wisconsin.
