HOUSTON (July 28, 2017)

Residents in Tanglewood, Uptown and surrounding communities searching for after-hours care for non-life-threatening conditions now have a new option where they can get immediate diagnoses and treatments without appointments.

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Tanglewood provides walk-in care seven days a week for a variety of illnesses and minor injuries. Staffed with board-certified family medicine physicians from Memorial Hermann Medical Group, the new Urgent Care combines the comfort of a primary care practice with the convenience of extended office hours.

“Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Tanglewood is the latest example of Memorial Hermann’s commitment to expand access to primary care across the Greater Houston region,” said David James, MD, senior vice president and CEO of Memorial Hermann Medical Group. “We know that a strong primary care network can help form the foundation for a healthier population. Memorial Hermann’s concerted effort to add Urgent Cares throughout the community helps ensure that patients in Houston and surrounding neighborhoods are getting the right care they need at times that are convenient for them.”

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Tanglewood gives providers seamless access to patients’ electronic health records, which allows for more coordinated care during and after appointments.

The facility is capable of treating patients as young as six months old, and offers an array of services for non-life-threatening conditions including flu, fever, earaches, insect bites, sprains, simple fractures, eye injuries and cuts requiring stitches. Each Urgent Care is capable of providing X-rays and laboratory services on-site, as well as wellness and prevention services, including physicals and immunizations.

“Urgent Care can be a wonderful solution for families on the go,” Dr. James said. “We understand how valuable a patient’s time can be, which is why we offer a service allowing patients to check in online and reserve their spots. When the doctor is ready to see you, we’ll send you a notification so that you can continue your daily life without having to sit in a waiting room.”

Memorial Hermann Urgent Care Tanglewood is open from 9 a.m. to 9.m., seven days a week for walk-in access and is located at 5885 San Felipe, Suite 325, Houston, Texas 77057.
