Urgent care provides treatment for minor conditions and illnesses that need immediate attention, but are not cause for an emergency room visit. Urgent care facilities are open beyond the hours of a typical primary care physician and are able to provide care during the day, weeknights and on weekends.

Emergency care vs. urgent care
Urgent care centers, which are sometimes called walk-in clinics, typically treat minor illnesses. Emergency rooms (ERs) treat patients with critical injuries and illnesses. Knowing the types of conditions treated at each location will help you know when to visit an ER or urgent care facility, which will ensure that you receive the care you need.
In most cases, you should visit an ER for the following conditions and/or symptoms:
- Blood in stool
- Broken bones
- Coughing or throwing up blood
- Deep wounds with heavy bleeding
- Head injuries and concussions
- High fever
- Severe allergic reactions
- Severe burns
- Severe dehydration
- Severe headaches, dizziness and/or confusion
- Suspected drug or alcohol overdose
- Suspected heart attack or stroke
- Suspected poisoning
- Trouble breathing
- Uncontrolled nausea or diarrhea
If you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, call 911.
