Use this service for non-emergency* health concerns from 6 p.m. – 8 a.m. on weekdays, or anytime on weekends.

Sick or Hurt After Hours?
Medical issues can happen at any time. Know where to go before something comes up.
- An urgent care center treats medical problems that require quick attention but are not life-threatening. Most urgent care centers see walk-in patients and are open evenings and weekends. Use our provider directory to find an urgent care center close to your home in our network.
- An emergency room, or ER, treats medical conditions that threaten to endanger your life or cause you serious injury. In a true emergency, don’t hesitate – call 911 or go to the ER.
- Your doctor’s office can treat health problems that can wait. For non-emergencies, call your PCP first. You may be able to schedule a same-day or next-day appointment or a telehealth visit from home.
When you can’t get in touch with your PCP, Johns Hopkins OnDemand Virtual Care is available 24/7. Use your computer or mobile device to connect with a doctor in minutes: no appointment needed! Sign up now so if something comes up, all you have to do is log in.
