TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — University Medical Center in Tuscaloosa has resumed evening hours for in-person walk-in care and urgent appointments.

Evening hours are currently on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Established patients who need walk-in care, or those who need to make appointments for urgent care, will be accommodated according to capacity.

To make an appointment, call 205-348-1770.

UMC had converted evening hour office visits to telemedicine visits this past spring due to COVID-19.

Established and new patients of all ages can receive care at UMC locations during daytime hours for the full spectrum of needs — from preventive care and wellness exams, to management of chronic conditions, to treatment for acute illness and accidents. Laboratory and X-ray services are provided on site at UMC Tuscaloosa, as well as nutrition counseling and mental health counseling for individuals and families.

UMC, operated by UA’s College of Community Health Sciences, provides comprehensive and patient-centered care to the West Alabama community from three locations:  Tuscaloosa, Northport and Demopolis. Evening appointments are offered only at the Tuscaloosa location, but are available to UMC patients from other locations, as well as to new patients.

UMC accepts BlueCross BlueShield of Alabama and other private insurance plans, Medicare and Medicaid.

UMC in Tuscaloosa is located at 850 Peter Bryce Blvd.
