For your safety, Family Care Network clinics have additional measures in place to reduce the risk of coronavirus exposure. If you need medical care for a minor illness or injury, FCN Urgent Care is here for you seven days a week – in person or via on-demand telemedicine.
Our Urgent Care in Bellingham, with onsite lab and x-ray service, offers same-day care for minor illness and injuries. Urgent care is also available in Lynden and Mount Vernon. We can also see you via telemedicine. Go to On-Demand Telemedicine>> to learn more.
Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis (no appointments). Check in begins 15 minutes before opening. Please note that Urgent Care hours are subject to change due to high patient volumes, long wait times, staffing issues, or weather events. Schedule changes are posted on our website, Facebook, and our Google business pages.
We accept most major medical insurance plans. All urgent care locations and on-demand telemedicine is open to FCN and non-FCN patients.
Urgent care is typically a lower-cost alternative to the emergency room, with shorter wait times and a calmer setting to treat issues such as:
- Cold and flu symptoms (fever, sore throat, cough, etc.)
- Sprains and strains
- Possible fractures
- Work-related injuries
- Eye or ear infection
- Sinus pain
- Back pain
- Minor cuts, scrapes or burns
- Minor abdominal or pelvic pain
- Urinary discomfort or symptoms

Life-threatening emergencies should be seen at the hospital, or dial 911. This includes difficulty breathing, heart attack/stroke, extremely high fever, severe trauma or open fracture (broken bone protruding through the skin), uncontrolled bleeding, poisoning, severe pain, major burns and other serious medical issues.
Sports clearance, CDL certification, and routine vaccinations are not available at Urgent Care. Please call your regular doctor to schedule an appointment.
