The Outer Banks Hospital Urgent Care Center - Kitty Hawk

Convenient Urgent Care Services

When you experience a non-life threatening injury or illness, it’s comforting to know that there are two conveniently located Outer Banks Hospital Urgent Care Centers (Nags Head & Kitty Hawk) staffed with providers who have extensive experience in urgent care medicine. Urgent care providers are also available for routine care, acute care, and physicals at both our Kitty Hawk location and our center in Nags Head across from The Outer Banks Hospital.

Each Urgent Care Center has on-site laboratory and radiology services to enable the diagnosis, treatment, and management of urgent medical conditions and minor trauma when your primary care provider is unavailable.


We provide treatment for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses including:

  • Common cold
  • Fractures
  • Sprains or strains
  • Strep or sore throat
  • Earaches
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Headaches
  • Cuts, scrapes or bites
  • Allergic reactions
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Flu shots
  • TB skin tests
  • On-site x-ray and lab
  • Sports physicals
  • Covid-19 Antibody testing
  • Covid-19 testing (symptomatic and asymptomatic)

Urgent care is not a replacement for emergency care, which is what you need if you have a life-threatening illnesses or injury. Urgent care is appropriate when you experience an illness or injury that requires care within 24 hours. We routinely treat children and adults after accidents or falls, sprains, strains and broken bones, minor trauma and cuts that require stitches, fever, flu, vomiting, diarrhea and nausea, skin rashes and infections. Appointments are not required.

The Outer Banks Hospital Urgent Care Centers are operated by Outer Banks Professional Services, LLC, an affiliate of The Outer Banks Hospital.
