Local, not-for-profit Mercy Urgent Care Foothills in Columbus opened June 18, 2019, for residents and visitors of Columbus, Polk County and the surrounding area, providing high-quality, affordable and convenient medical care for non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries, seven days a week, at a fraction of the time and cost of an emergency room visit. Known for its compassionate and affordable care, Mercy doctors, nurses, and support staff care for 70,000 men, women, and children annually. To date, Mercy Urgent Care and Mercy Occupational Medicine have served more than 1.5 million patients in Western North Carolina.
Supporting the residents, visitors, and employers of WNC is a top priority, and to do this effectively, Mercy Urgent Care, as an independent provider, accepts most major insurances including Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina; offers a self-pay option for those without insurance, with simple, tiered “fee for service” pricing; and has a Compassionate Care financial assistance program for qualifying patients.
Donations to not-for-profit Mercy Urgent Care’s Catherine McAuley Mercy Foundation enable thousands of dollars in charity care locally and internationally each year. Mercy Urgent Care is in Columbus, Brevard, Burnsville, Weaverville, and three Asheville locations and is only closed on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
