Urgent care clinics in Silicon Valley

Regional Medical Center of San Jose is proud to be part of a hospital network that provides several urgent care locations throughout our community. Our CareNow® Urgent Care locations provide more ways for members of the San Jose community to access top-quality healthcare.

Our urgent care clinics provide same-day care when you need medical attention quickly but not a trip to the emergency room (ER). Many of our clinics also offer extended business hours to meet the needs of patients who are unable to visit during the workday.

You can use our Web-Check In® tool to plan your visit to one of our CareNow® locations in north San Jose or Milpitas.
