Northern Light Walk-in Care offers prompt medical care for your minor illnesses or injury every day. With 8 locations across Maine, one of our centers is near you. 

If your primary care doctor is unavailable, you don’t have a physician or you are from out of town, just walk into any Northern Light Walk-in Care location. You’ll receive expert, compassionate, and immediate care for broken bones, sprains and strains, minor injuries, and illnesses.
