The biggest difference is the times that Colorado Springs urgent care facilities are open vs primary care facilities. Thrive Health Systems is open 9 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, so if you are reading this and it is within that time and day, then we are open and you can call us at 719.476.0873 or walk-in at our 4667 Centennial Blvd., Colorado Springs, CO 80919 location.
Colorado Springs urgent care facilities are often open until 8 pm and open Saturdays and Sundays. Greater availability allows them to take stress off the local Colorado Springs hospital emergency rooms.
We intend to extend our hours, and we will announced it when we do.
Urgent care facilities are over staffed to account for walk-in traffic; again, to take the stress off local emergency rooms. Thrive Health Systems accepts walk-in, but it is mainly run by appointment.
Both primary care and Colorado Springs urgent care clinics are staffed by medical doctors, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants. Click the highlighted text to read about our on-site physician assistant and medical director.
If you are in search for an urgent care in Colorado Springs or a primary care provider, depending on the time, Thrive Health Systems may your best choice.
