UNC Orthopaedics introduces 'OrthoNow' and expands hours

The UNC Department of Orthopaedics is expanding the hours and changing the name of its popular and highly-rated urgent care.

This service, formerly known as “Prompt Care," has been serving the community for several years. It will now be known as “OrthoNow."

OrthoNow offers same-day orthopaedic visits for acute sprains and strains, joint pain, sports injuries and possible fractures. There is no need to wait -- you can be seen the same day or call to set up an appointment to see your favorite practitioner. The new hours are:

  • Monday - Thursday
    8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
  • Friday
    8 a.m. -  5 p.m.

Call:  (919) 843-4711

OrthoNow is conveniently located at the junction of I-40 and NC Route 54 at the following address:

  • Carolina Point II
    6011 Farrington Rd
    2nd Floor, Suite 201
    Chapel Hill, NC  27517

Not only can you be seen immediately, you can be seen by the same team that takes care of the Tar Heels and is on the leading edge of innovation and musculoskeletal care -- UNC Orthopaedics!

We are currently in the process of changing our signage, so you may still see signs for “Prompt Care” when you come for a visit.
