The UPCC provides urgent care for patients with non-life-threatening injuries, illnesses, and conditions that should be addressed within 12 to 24 hours, but do not require the service and expertise of a hospital emergency department (CTAS 3,4,5). A temporary location UPCC is currently operating 7 days per week, Monday to Friday 1600-2200, Saturday 0800-2200, and Sunday and Holidays 0900-1700. Successful candidates will join the new permanent Richmond UPCC that is scheduled to begin operations in April 2022. Permanent site hours are 0800-2200 everyday except Sundays 0900-1700.

Applicants should have experience in splinting and casting, suturing, and minor procedures. A longitudinal primary care clinic will be established and co-located with urgent care.
