Urgent and Emergency Care

When an emergency happens, it is reassuring to know that expert care is immediately available. That’s why our network includes 64 urgent care clinics and 21 emergency departments between Bellingham and Olympia.

Call 9-1-1 if you are having, or may be having, a life-threatening emergency. For other medical issues, you can contact your primary care provider or clinic. You can also contact the UW Medicine Community Care Line at 206.744.2500 for advice from registered nurses. If you’re still uncertain about your condition, or whether you are experiencing a medical emergency, it’s often best to visit an emergency department for an evaluation. The emergency department is always available for your emergency care needs.
