NORTHAMPTON — Cooley Dickinson Health Care has reopened Urgent Care at its hospital location. The Urgent Care practice, which closed in the spring of 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, provides an alternative to Emergency Department visits for illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening, and in many cases can reduce the cost and wait time for treatment of those conditions.

Urgent Care reopens in a new space in the west wing of the 30 Locust St. building, which was set up to serve acute COVID-19 patients and whose mandate has been winding down as COVID case numbers drop in the region and vaccination rates increase.

Urgent Care clinicians treat cold and flu symptoms; viral illnesses; cuts and minor lacerations including those requiring sutures or suture removal; minor burns; ear and eye infections; respiratory and urinary tract infections; rashes; strains/sprains and minor fractures. Other services provided will include incision and drainage of abscesses; sports and camp physicals.

The reopening brings the number of Cooley Dickinson Urgent Care offices in the Valley back to three, including the Southampton clinic at the 12 College Highway/Big Y Plaza and the Amherst Urgent Care. No appointment is necessary at any of the clinics.
