Emergency vs Urgent Care
It's important to know that there is a big difference between an urgent care facility and an emergency room. Here's how to determine the best solution for your particular needs:
An Urgent Care facility is best described as a clinic that provides diagnosis of conditions that may need to be treated immediately but are not life threatening. These may include:
- Sinus problems
- Insect bites/stings
- Sore throat/fever/upset stomach
Urgent Care centers offer services on a walk-in basis and usually have extended evening and weekend hours. They may or may not have more advanced services than primary care physician practices.
Emergency room care
An Emergency Room provides care for severe and life threatening conditions such as:
- Chest pain
- Severe bleeding/wounds
- Difficulty breathing
An Emergency Room, as an extension of a hospital, is open 24/7 and has specially trained medical staff with the ability to recognize and treat life-threatening conditions. Emergency rooms also provide advanced technology of onsite imaging services and complete laboratory testing. As a result, the combined medical staff at an emergency room can provide the most appropriate, immediate diagnosis and care for virtually any medical condition.
Remember—don't take chances with your health. If you think you may be experiencing a severe or life-threatening medical emergency, come to the emergency room or call 911 immediately.
