Urgent Care

Illnesses and injuries don’t always pop up at a convenient time, and that’s why we’ve created our Urgent Care clinic in San Rafael. With extended weekday hours and regular hours on the weekend, it’s the perfect option for quick, convenient care when you can’t see your regular doctor, or you don’t have one at all. MarinHealth Outpatient Imaging Center is right down the hall, so you can typically get X-rays right away on weekdays.

MarinHealth Urgent Care takes appointments and walk ins, and we follow strict infection prevention protocols for COVID-19. All patients will be screened when arriving or calling for an appointment.

For Pediatric Patients

While MarinHealth Urgent Care can treat pediatric patients 3 months and older, we also offer after-hours care specifically for children — provided by pediatricians — at MarinHealth Pediatric After-Hours Care in Larkspur.
