Complete Medical Care for Unexpected Illnesses and Injuries

No one plans to have an accident or to need urgent care for a medical condition — and these issues always seem to arise at the wrong time. 

Getting a timely appointment with your primary care provider can be difficult, and many injuries or illnesses don't quite require a trip to the Emergency Department.

When these circumstances arise, Health Express is here for you.

Whether you don't have time to wait for an appointment with your doctor or need care for a sudden injury after your PCP's office as closed for the day, our team is ready to offer the expert care you need to get back to 100%

What do we treat at Health Express?

At Health Express, we treat injuries and illnesses that require the attention of a medical professional but don't necessarily rise to the level of a trip to the hospital.

From stitches after a kitchen accident or an x-ray after a big collision on the hockey rink, Health Express has been getting South Shore families back on their feet for years.

Because Health Express is part of South Shore Health, patients will have access to all aspects of a world-class community health system if their injury or illness requires further treatment.
