Navigating healthcare can be hard. It doesn’t have to be.

You’ve got enough on your plate without the added burden of waiting in line to see a provider, trying to schedule a doctor’s appointment that’s convenient for you, finding medical care when it can’t wait, or simply figuring out where to start.

Edward-Elmhurst Health is making it easier to get the personal care you need, the way you need it.

From safe in-person care (by appointment or walk-in) to virtual care from home, we have the tools to meet your health needs quickly and easily.

Need a same-day appointment? Dealing with cold or flu symptoms after-hours? Looking for a COVID-19 test? You can choose which care option works best for you.

  • Same-day, next-day appointments: We offer care when you need to see a doctor ASAP. Quickly schedule an appointment with one of our primary care providers for preventive care, illnesses or injuries. You can schedule a visit or test online or on the MyEEHealth™ mobile app, 24/7.

  • Virtual care: We offer care from the comfort of home, or anywhere, through Video Visits. It’s simply a video call which allows you to meet face-to-face, in real time, with a healthcare professional. We offer scheduled and on-demand Video Visits.

  • Walk-in care: We offer same-day walk-in care with no appointment needed, seven days a week. Dealing with cold/flu symptoms? A minor burn or break? Need a COVID-19 test? Some of our locations offer lab services, X-ray and advanced imaging. Find a walk-in care location near you.

  • On My Way: We have a way to save you time and make life just a bit easier. Now you can let us know you’re on your way to save your spot at a walk-in care location. It’s even easier when you use the MyEEHealth app.

  • Emergency care: We offer care close to home when you need it most. Our three 24/7 ERs are always ready in case of an emergency. View ER wait times.

Not sure where to start? It can be a challenge to know what kind of care you need for different situations. That’s why we’ve introduced Eleanor, your personal virtual assistant.

Ask Eleanor, she’ll help find what you need: check your symptoms, find a doctor, schedule an appointment, save your spot at a walk-in care location, and learn about COVID-19 symptoms, testing, vaccine information and more. You can find Eleanor here or on the MyEEHealth app.

Need care now? View our walk-in care services for care that can’t wait. Find a location near you, view wait times and let us know you’re on your way to save your spot.

Healthcare is even easier when you use the MyEEHealth mobile app. Download the app and keep track of your health from the comfort of anywhere, 24/7.

Edward-Elmhurst Health offers screening options for COVID-19 to see if you meet testing requirements. We also offer Video Visits and E-Visits for COVID-19 symptoms.
