VAN BUREN, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — Baptist Health Urgent Care has opened a new center in Van Buren on Fayetteville Road, across from McDonald’s.
“Whether it’s a minor injury, vaccination, sports physicals or other wellness care, it’s important for families to have a quality healthcare option that is comprehensive and affordable – and in a convenient location,” said Mike Dupuis, Vice President of Urgent Team Family of Urgent Care & Walk-in Centers. “Urgent care services are a faster, cost-effective option to replace the emergency room for non-life-threatening issues, or waiting to get an appointment with your physician.”
Baptist Health Urgent Care’s 13 locations offer urgent care, family care, and occupational health services seven days a week with extended hours. For added convenience, walk-ins are welcome, or patients can plan a same or next-day visit online or reserve a Telemedicine visit.

- Asthma and allergies
- Medically supervised weight loss
- Flu, colds, viral illnesses
- Ear and eye injuries
- Bites, stings, allergic reactions
- Skin conditions, including burns
- Broken bones, sprains, strains
- COVID-19 testing and vaccination
