Chelsea HealthCare Center offers urgent care services for children and adults seeking an alternative to the emergency room for minor injuries, non-acute illnesses and routine medical services.

Chelsea HealthCare Center urgent care services provide high-quality medical care for children and adults who are unable to see their regular physician or who have no primary care provider.

Your Local Walk-in Clinic

Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries and routine medical services such as:

  • Evaluation and treatment of most common illnesses
  • Stitching minor cuts
  • Splinting broken bones
  • Laboratory services
  • Radiology services including x-rays and ultrasounds; CT and MRI available on a non-emergent basis
  • Administration of IV fluids and some IV medications
  • Referral for additional services, if needed

If you require complex evaluation, hospitalization, are in labor or need surgery, please seek care at your local emergency room or acute-care hospital.

Insurance and Billing

Chelsea HealthCare Center Urgent Care accepts most major health insurance carriers, managed care plans and Medicaid. We do not accept BMC HealthNet Plan or Network Health Forward (Commonwealth Care).

Please note: Chelsea HealthCare Center Urgent Care is a licensed hospital facility, and therefore you will not be billed under an urgent care benefit structure. Our visits are processed as "outpatient hospital visits," and this may result in higher copayments and deductibles. Please review your health insurance coverage or call your health insurance provider to better understand out-of-pocket expenses.

We provide medical care to patients regardless of insurance coverage. Uninsured or underinsured patients may be eligible for financial assistance. Please call 617-884-8300 to connect with the financial services office.
