Choose Sutter Walk-In Care clinics to treat everyday illnesses like ear infections, seasonal allergies, mild fevers and colds.

Bumps, bruises and illnesses often occur without warning. For the same out-of-pocket cost as a primary care visit, Sutter Walk-In Care clinics provide convenient care for everyday health needs—no appointment necessary.

With 12 locations throughout the greater Sacramento, Central Valley and Bay Area communities, Walk-In Care clinics are open daily from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., and most holidays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sutter Health Plus members can go online to schedule an appointment—or just walk in—for the same out-of-pocket cost as a primary care visit. The clinics offer a relaxing environment with comfortable seating, complimentary coffee and tea, in addition to free Wi-Fi and outlets to plug in your phone or laptop.

“Our members have access to all Sutter Walk-In Care clinics, regardless of their medical group or location,” shared Rob Carnaroli, Sutter Health Plus Vice President of Sales. “It’s a new front door to receiving quality care from our network of providers.”
