Emergency Department or Urgent Care?

Depending on you or your loved one's condition, an urgent care facility might be more appropriate than going to an emergency room, or it could be the reverse situation. This can be a difficult decision to make, especially when things are happening quickly, which is why we've put together the list below to help guide your decision. If you think you are having a medical emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
