It doesn’t matter if you’re spending time diving into a pool or sledding down a steep hill, there’s always a chance someone might get hurt. It’s important to be prepared and know where the nearest urgent care is and whether they have the tools and knowledge to help you.

Community Care

Community Care was created in 1996 in Idaho Falls as a walk-in clinic and urgent care facility. It was such a big success that they continued to open three other clinics in nearby areas. They provide many different services and have treatments for a variety of ailments, including: bites, lacerations, sprains, back pain, mild depression, abscesses, cysts, acne, infections, eye injuries, TB testing, mild hypertension and many more. All X-rays are done on site. Community Care also has a system so that if you don’t want to wait in the building, you can leave and they’ll call you when it’s your turn for your check-up.
