Emergency Care vs. Urgent Care
Not sure when to go to the ER or Urgent Care?  An emergency room is for life-threatening situations and complex medical conditions.  Do not wait to go to the ER if you are experiencing chest pain, stroke symptoms or abdominal pain. For life threatening emergencies do not hesitate to dial 9-1-1 immediately.
An Urgent Care Center should meet your needs when you have an illness, minor injury, infection or immunization - the four I's.
