UPMC Primary Care Walk-in Centers

COVID-19 Update

ATTENTION: Walk-in Center Patients

As of Sunday, Nov. 1, UPMC Primary Care Walk-in Centers at South Side, Murrysville, Cranberry, Bethel Park, Allison Park, and Bedford are closed.

For your convenience, many UPMC Primary Care offices offer early morning, evening, and weekend hours. Our providers offer video visits, telemed visits, and in-office appointments. For details, contact your doctor's office, use MyUPMC, or Find-A-Doctor.

We are not able to test patients for COVID-19. Before your visit, for your safety, please call the Walk-in Center. We are temporarily conducting initial patient evaluations on the phone or with a video visit.

When arriving at the Walk-in Center, you can expect:

  • A safe and clean environment
  • To maximize social distancing, patients may be asked to wait in the car until the appointment time
  • Patients and support persons will be pre-screened prior to entering the office
  • Patients must wear a mask inside the office
  • Social distancing is required inside the office
  • If needed, one support person may accompany a patient and social distancing should be maintained
  • Patients should not bring children inside the office, unless the child is the patient being cared for. 

Video visits and telemedicine visits are a convenient option for your primary care. Call your primary care office to schedule an appointment.

If you have respiratory symptoms, including fever, headache, sore throat, nasal congestion, and cough, you can book a video visit online.

If you are experiencing severe symptoms such as trouble breathing, you should visit an emergency department in your community for immediate care. If you can, call ahead of time so they may prepare for your arrival and prevent the spread of any illness, but do not delay if you have severe breathing problems.

If you believe you have been exposed to the coronavirus or have symptoms, visit "How to Find COVID-19 Care" to navigate your care options.

Convenient primary care services are offered to consumers who are patients of select primary care offices, located throughout western PA.

No appointment is necessary. UPMC doctors and staff provide the health care throughout the day, during the evening, and on weekends. If you are not a patient at one of the primary care practices listed below, please review your insurance coverage and talk with the Walk-in Center staff prior to receiving services.

  • Flu or cold symptoms
