What is the difference between Urgent Care and the Emergency Room?

Your primary care doctor is the best place to start when you’re sick or hurt.  They know you and your health history, including any underlying conditions you may have.  But what if you get sick or injured on the weekend or late at night when your doctor’s office is closed?

If your condition isn’t life-threatening, but needs to be taken care of right away, then urgent care may be the right choice for you.  Urgent Care centers are usually open after normal business hours, including evenings and weekends.

Emergency Rooms are the best place for treating severe and life-threatening conditions. They’re open 24 hours, seven days a week.
