Urgent care

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 medical practice, providing care during the day, weeknights and on weekends.

Emergency care versus urgent care

Urgent care locations or walk-in clinics typically treat minor illnesses like the flu or strep throat, which makes CareNow® locations ideal for treating 24-hour bugs and minor illnesses if you are unable to see your primary care doctor.

Although urgent care centers are equipped to quickly diagnose and treat a variety of minor illnesses and injuries, if you are experiencing a life-threatening medical emergency, call 911 immediately. Below, we have outlined instances where patients should go directly to the emergency room versus receiving non-emergent care at an urgent care clinic.
