Glendale Glitters is better than Sickbed Shivers

When the cacti are trimmed in lights and holiday cheer bounds from tops of red desert mountains, who will you call if you get sick? Who is there for you when the turkey comes out of the oven and burns your hand, Pilgrim? Should a Champagne cork find an eye, who will you call on New Year’s Day when everywhere is shut down in tribute to our national festivities?

FastMed is your answer to all your medical questions this holiday season. Our friendly, local staff comes in on the holidays because we are committed to providing you a faster, less expensive alternative to the emergency room every day of the year, especially the days when you have a hard time finding care anywhere else.

How can I find holiday hours around Arizona?


In short, FastMed is open 365 days a year. But you can check the hours of operation of your specific FastMed branch online. While we have branches across the state of Arizona and you never need an appointment to stop in, some weekend and holiday hours vary slightly between branches. Be sure to search for your location online before you trek out on a holiday.

Next, if you are in an extra hurry, trying to get something checked out between holiday errands, you can always check in online to save some time. We pride ourselves on being faster and more efficient than the ER — not to mention a fraction of the cost — and our online check-in is an extension of that commitment. Heck, you can sign up on your mobile device.

What days are considered holidays in Arizona?

National holidays recognized in the state of Arizona are:

  • Veteran’s Day: Wednesday, November 11, 2015

  • Christmas Day: Friday, December 25, 2015

On each of these days, check to see if your regular physician’s office is closed or open. If you need assistance, you can call FastMed. We’ll definitely be open.
