Same-day clinic open to the public

WashU Express Care, a same-day clinic, initially established for Washington
University employees and their dependents, is now open to the public and
accepting patients ages 18 and older.

The clinic, offered through the Department of Emergency Medicine, treats minor ailments and acute illnesses for patients whose primary care providers are unavailable. Virtual visits are available, as well as in-person visits at the Center for Advanced Medicine, Suite 5A, when necessary.

“WashU Express Care is an opportunity for us to offer convenient, easily
accessible, affordable, high-quality care seven days a week,” said Brent E. Ruoff, MD, the chief of emergency medicine and an associate professor of emergency medicine. “Our focus is on minor care complaints, helping patients avoid crowded emergency departments, as well as long waiting times. Our virtual treatment option also helps prevent the spread of COVID-19.”

WashU Express Care sees patients from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through
Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, including holidays. To
schedule a virtual or in-person appointment, call 314-747-3500 or 844-747-3500. (On-demand virtual visits also will be available in the near future through MyChart.)
