What To Do: After Hours Emergencies 


Unless you are experiencing an emergency, consider visiting an Urgent Care center to save time and money.

  • The average cost of a hospital ER visit or Freestanding Emergency Room visit: $1,500

  • The Average cost of an Urgent Care visit typically ranges from: $30-$150, Depending on your copay and deductible.

Free-Standing Emergency Rooms look like an urgent care clinic, but they will cost the same as an ER visit at the hospital! When in doubt call first and ask if they are an Urgent Care or an Emergency Room. 

Since both Mt. Vista Family Practice and OnPoint Urgent Care are part of the OnPoint Medical Group, your medical records will be available for use at any OnPoint Urgent Care location. Any specific medical notes your primary care physician has provided will also be available in our system, allowing for more precise evaluations during your Urgent Care visit.

Our trusted partners at OnPoint Urgent Care are available 7 days a week if you encounter a medical need outside of our regular business hours.
