ExpressCARE

When you can’t wait for an appointment, it's good to know you have a partner that offers convenient care. Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) offers ExpressCARE walk-in care 365 days a year. Similar to an urgent care clinic, we offer high-quality medical care for common illnesses and minor injuries.

No matter which ExpressCARE location you visit, you will receive safe, convenient care near your home or workplace. And we offer extended hours during evenings, weekends and on holidays so care is available when you need it.

ExpressCARE wait times

No one wants to wait long when they need urgent care. We’ve rethought the waiting process to ensure you receive safe care when you need it. For your convenience, view our locations to see current wait times. You can then select an ExpressCARE location that is close by and has wait times that work best for you. The wait times listed are based on the average wait over the last hour unless the practice has just opened for the day. Each person’s individual wait time begins at check-in and ends when that person is seen by a provider.

On this page, you’ll also be able to view the number of “people ahead of you.” This is the current number of patients waiting to be seen by a provider. Your actual wait time may vary depending on the flow of patients and those patients’ needs. You can select an ExpressCARE location that is close by and has wait times that work best for you.

When you arrive, check-in by walking to the front desk or by using the eCheck-In feature on the MyLVHN app. If a patient room is not ready at the time of your check-in, you can choose to wait in your car. To learn about other precaution we’ve taken, visit LVHN.org/PreparedPartners.

ExpressPASS

No appointment is necessary to visit an ExpressCARE. However you can avoid the wait by scheduling an ExpressPASS appointment.

Children's ExpressCARE

We also offer Children's ExpressCARE in Palmer Township which provides walk-in, no-appointment care for kids up to age 21 years.
