Banner Urgent Care recently opened an urgent care near Tatum Boulevard and Thunderbird Road to provide convenient care to Phoenix and Paradise Valley residents.

The urgent care, located at 4760 E. Thunderbird Road, is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

“We are always focused on customer needs, and we believe this location will offer the community access to the right care at the right time,” says Brian Standage, chief executive officer at Banner Health Urgent Care Services – Ambulatory.

“Right now, we are helping a lot of people by providing COVID-19 testing. During cold and flu season, we can offer flu vaccinations and easy-to-access care. And, of course, we provide outstanding care for non-life-threatening injuries and illnesses as well.”

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Banner Urgent Cares offer COVID-19 testing, as well as care for common medical conditions such as sinus infections, bronchial infections, sore throat, insect bites, and urinary-tract infections. Additonal urgent care services include flu shots, X-rays, sports physicals, stiches, and diagnostic tests.

For additional convenience, patients can reserve their spot in advance by scheduling online. Banner Urgent Cares also offer telehealth appointments so patients can get the care they need at home.
