Quick Treatment for Urgent Issues

If you need critical care, we work closely with other departments in the MetroHealth system and also refer you to specialists.

For example, if you are treated at MetroExpressCare for an ankle injury and need to follow up with an orthopedic specialist, your clinic doctor will make that referral for you, saving you a trip to your primary care doctor.

You don't have to be a MetroHealth patient to use MetroExpressCare walk-in clinics, and your copay will be similar to what you'd pay at your doctor's office. If the MetroExpressCare clinic can't accommodate the severity of your condition, you will need to go to the nearest emergency room.

If you see these symptoms or you believe your condition is life-threatening, call 911 or go to an emergency room near you.

  • Bleeding that won't stop.
  • Chest pain.
  • Symptoms of poisoning.
  • Major burns.
