Westwood, MA -- Partners HealthCare has opened a new Partners Urgent Care center in Westwood, Massachusetts, providing a convenient and quality urgent care option for town residents and those in surrounding communities. Care providers treat a wide range of illnesses and injuries for adults and children age three and up, from sore throats and infections to cuts and broken bones. In addition, Partners Urgent Care offers digital X-rays and in-house labs.

All Partners Urgent Care centers operate under the clinical and quality oversight of Partners HealthCare, including physicians from Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, ensuring the highest quality of care. “Partners Urgent Care is committed to providing patients with high-quality, affordable care where they are and when they need it,” said Marc J. Shapiro, MD, Medical Director of Partners Urgent Care, an attending emergency physician at Massachusetts General Hospital. “Partners Urgent Care is a lower-cost option for unexpected illnesses and injuries like sprains and stitches without having to go to the emergency room.”

The new walk-in clinic is conveniently located at 90 Brigham Way in Westwood, next to the University Park MBTA commuter rail station; parking also is available on site. Partners Urgent Care is located at the Brigham and Women’s Health Care Center, which provides primary and specialty care services.

All Partners Urgent Care centers are open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Walk-ins are welcome, and patients also can check in online or by phone. Partners Urgent Care accepts most commercial and public insurance plans. Patients do not need to be an existing patient within the Partners HealthCare system. If patients require follow-up care, they may be connected to primary care physicians (PCPs) or specialists, including physicians within the Partners HealthCare system.
