About Urgent Care

Urgent Care centers provide walk-in, extended hour access, acute illness and injury care that is either beyond the scope or availability of the typical primary care practice or retail clinic. Urgent care ideally helps in reserving the nation’s emergency room resources for more serious, life-threatening conditions. The ability of an urgent care center to provide immediate care for acute, non-life threatening illness and injury is a critical component of any community’s health system. Cooperation between patients, primary physicians, emergency departments and urgent care providers can create a network of care options that puts the patient in the right hands at the right time for the right level of care.
