An Urgent Care typically treats non-life threatening conditions such as common colds, flu symptoms, strep throat, lacerations and more.
An Emergency Room treats conditions in need of immediate attention, for example, chest pain, abdominal pain, dehydration, fractures, and much more.
Finding the right level of care can make a big difference in the outcome of your visit. Receiving care in an Emergency Room for a non-emergency condition may result in paying for a higher level of care than is needed. Selecting an Urgent Care for an emergency might waste valuable time as you are directed or transferred to an appropriate facility.
