About Us

Temple ReadyCare provides general medical services at four convenient urgent care locations in Northeast Philadelphia, Port Richmond and Jenkintown.

Temple ReadyCare can treat most illnesses and injuries that are not life-threatening. Our services include urgent care and general medical services. Individuals with serious medical problems such as chest pain and pressure, trouble breathing or major trauma should seek care at a hospital emergency department.

Our locations are staffed with experienced Temple physicians who have an array of services available to them to better diagnose and treat most illnesses and injuries. Equipped with X-ray, EKG, spirometry, on-site laboratory and durable medical equipment (splints, crutches), many illnesses and injuries can be cared for with a single visit. We are also a trusted choice for school, sports and camp physicals.

Temple ReadyCare fits your lifestyle with offices open 7 days a week with extended hours offering you convenient coverage on nights, weekends and all holidays except Christmas.

ReadyCare sites treat adults and children (6 months old and up) in our state-of-the-art and easy-to-access facilities. Your comfort is our number one priority. New sites are equipped with flat screen televisions in every treatment room as well as in the lobby. Our staff is focused on ensuring excellent care and service from your first contact to discharge and care follow-up. We not only care about your health, but also about your experience at ReadyCare.

Most major insurances are accepted.

Temple ReadyCare sites have met the strict criteria of the Urgent Care Association of America and we are designated as Certified Urgent Care clinics.
