Urgent Care Services in Washington, NC

How We Began

Rachel Gardner founded Urgent Care Down East in 2014 when she noticed a lack of immediate healthcare or available walk-in clinics. The closest urgent care facility to the rural area of Washington, NC, was over 45 minutes away. Rachel noticed that the nearest emergency room was being flooded with simple acute care needs, which told her that the area badly needed an immediate care facility.

Rachel has over 25 years of experience in the medical care field and has traveled all over the state of North Carolina. She decided to open the company to fill the lack of urgent care in the area to provide accessible and efficient immediate care for individuals.

Today, Rachel continues to provide same-day comprehensive and personalized care for those who walk in without an appointment.
