Urgent Care

You can’t always plan when you need healthcare. An injury or illness can occur when you are not able see your regular provider. With Urgent Care you still have access to quality care on a timely basis without an appointment.

What is Urgent Care?

Urgent Care is prompt medical attention for conditions that need to be treated right away but are non-life-threatening. You receive same-day care from a team that includes physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, with support from medical assistants, laboratory, and radiology technicians, and more.

Urgent Care treats injuries and illnesses that are not severe enough to need care that is normally found in a hospital emergency room. A wide range of services are available and even include the ability to perform minor procedures, provide basic lab tests and imaging to help provide an accurate diagnosis and determine proper treatment.

Consider Urgent Care For:

•  Allergies
•  Colds, cough and flu
•  Earache/infections
•  Headache
•  Laryngitis
•  Minor sunburn
•  Pink eye or minor eye irritation
•  Sinus infections
•  Sore throat
•  Stomachache
•  Other minor illnesses 
•  Bladder infections
•  Cuts, scrapes, bruises
•  Fever
•  Insect bite
•  Minor burns
•  Mononucleosis
•  Ringworm
•  Rashes
•  Sprains
•  Upper respiratory infection 

The benefits of Urgent Care extend beyond expanded access. Visitors to Urgent Care will typically have a shorter wait time than at an Emergency Room and will usually have a less expensive cost of visit with lower insurance co-pays.

When to seek Emergency Care.

Urgent Care centers do not treat life threatening conditions. Injuries that require rapid or advanced treatment should be treated at an Emergency Room in a hospital setting where a higher level of care is available. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 911 or your local emergency services, or go to the nearest emergency room, especially for suspected cases of stroke, heart attack or head trauma.

Symptoms that should be evaluated in an emergency room include, but are not limited to:

•  Persistent chest pain 
•  Difficulty breathing
•  Severe pain, particularly in abdomen 
•  Sudden clumsiness, loss of balance or fainting
•  Sudden difficulty speaking
•  Altered mental status or confusion
•  Sudden weakness or paralysis
•  Severe heart palpitations
•  Sudden, severe headache
•  Newborn with fever 100.4 degrees or higher
•  Fall that causes injury 
•  Sudden vision changes
•  Sudden testicular pain and swelling
•  Broken bones or dislocated joints
•  Deep cuts that require stitches 
•  Head or eye injuries
•  Severe flu or cold symptoms
•  High fevers or fevers with rash
•  Vaginal bleeding during pregnancy
•  Severe and persistent vomiting or diarrhea
•  Seizures without diagnosis of epilepsy
