When it comes to urgent matters, they rarely happen at convenient times. When you sprain an ankle or your child has an earache, you want medical care fast.
Our new urgent care center was conceived to provide treatment for the more common, day-to-day illnesses or injuries, for adults and children 18 months and older. Those include:
We are creating state-of-the-art urgent care centers for our patients’ convenience.
We understand that it is important for everyone to have a primary care provider. Your primary provider can coordinate all your care, which provides a more comprehensive picture of your overall health and medical history. But sometimes your provider may not be able to see you when you need it or may not have fast access to X-rays or blood tests. In that case, an urgent care center like ours can expedite the care you need.
For patients who do not have a primary care provider, we are able to refer them to a physician, whether for a follow-up for their illness or injury or just to initiate that relationship.
It is important to remember that our urgent care center is not for serious injuries or illnesses, such as severe lacerations, heart attacks, strokes, or other life-threatening conditions. For that type of care, the services of an emergency department are much more appropriate and certainly necessary. Patients who may be unstable or have suffered an accident or medical event that could be critical should always go to an emergency department or call 9-1-1.
