What is urgent care?
Urgent care clinics are a convenient solution to your unexpected medical needs. In the event of an illness or injury, seeking treatment from an overcrowded ER can cause unnecessary delays to your recovery.
Urgent care clinics fill the gap between overburdened ERs and the urgent needs of patients. With urgent care, you can access same-day, onsite treatment for your most pressing medical concerns.
Should I go to urgent care or the emergency room?
Emergency rooms are often crowded and overburdened with patients experiencing potentially fatal conditions. Emergency room visits are necessary for issues like large open wounds, unconsciousness, and exposed broken bones that, if left untreated, will result in further injury or death.
When you’re in need of prompt medical treatment for a nonlife-threatening issue, urgent care centers can address most unexpected illnesses and injuries.
The benefits of urgent care include:
