This is the second urgent care program Virginia Mason has launched this year. In January, it opened an urgent care clinic at its Bainbridge Island facility. Urgent care is designed for individuals with minor health problems that cannot wait for a scheduled appointment. It is not a substitute for either emergency or primary care.
