Rapid Care in Ukiah Valley

RAPID CARE IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED. If you have an emergency, please visit the emergency department or call 911 immediately. If your condition is not an emergency, but you feel you need to be seen in the next 24 hours, please contact your primary care provider and request a same day appointment.

Rapid Care is designed for urgent but not life-threatening situations. Patients who have minor emergencies can go to Ukiah Valley Rural Health Center's Rapid Care where our dedicated staff will care for their medical needs. This allows the emergency room and trauma center to concentrate on patients who are suffering from life-threatening conditions. By separating serious illnesses from minor emergencies, patients receive faster care.

Our patients tell our story best

"I woke one morning with an ear infection. I called my doctor, who told me I would have to wait three days before I could get in. A doctor in Lake County told me the same thing. I called Ukiah Valley Rural Health Clinic’s family practice, and they said, 'Oh you poor thing! I can get you in this morning, but it may be a bit of a wait. Or I can get you into our evening clinic at 5:00, and they could see you right away!' They are so wonderful, I've already switched to women's health and I'll also be switching to family practice for my primary care doctor."
