When is Urgent Care appropriate?

Urgent Care is for non-life-threatening illness and injury such as:

  • Coughs and congestion
  • Small Cuts requiring stitches
  • Ear infections
  • Fevers
  • Flu symptoms
  • Insect bites
  • Rashes
  • Scrapes and bruises
  • Sore throats
  • Strains
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Wound rechecks

Please note that Urgent Care patients are seen in order of arrival. Emergency patients are seen in order of the severity of their condition. Urgent Care and the Emergency Department share a waiting room. If you are waiting, and see other patients get called back for treatment ahead of you, it may be due to their condition. The staff will keep you informed of when you will be taken in for treatment. If you have questions at any time during your visit, please ask.
