Beginning April 9, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston will open an after-hours adult urgent care center. Located in the UTMB Specialty Care Center at Victory Lakes, 2240 Gulf Freeway South in League City, the center will be open Monday through Friday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Adults needing treatment for allergies, asthma, burns, fevers, sprains, minor cuts and the like at a time when their physician’s office is closed can skip the emergency department and go to the new urgent care center.

UTMB physicians and medical professionals will provide quality care and prompt attention for routine maladies as well as on-site X-rays for broken bones.
