The Difference between Urgent Care and Emergency Services 

Emergency services and urgent care are provided by the same team of SHC physicians, nurses and staff, so it's important to understand the difference.

A visit that begins in Urgent Care may become an Emergency Department visit after the physician completes the exam.

Urgent Care

Urgent Care is the place for minor conditions, such as earaches, sore throats and urinary tract infections. You see, we understand getting sick doesn't always happen on a 9 to 5 basis, so neither should getting well again. Think of Urgent Care as your doctor's office when your doctor's office is closed.

No referrals or appointments are needed. 

HOURS: Urgent care is available Monday through Friday from 5pm to 10pm and on weekends and holidays from 8am to 10pm. 

Patients are evaluated in our Triage Room adjacent our Emergency Department. If lab work is done (other than a monospot, throat culture or urine sample) the visit is automatically elevated to an Emergency Department visit.

Urgent Care is the place to come for...

  • Insect bites
  • Cold and flu symptoms
  • Earaches
  • Minor infections
  • Minor rashes and burns
  • Sore throat or cough
  • Sprains and strains
  • Urinary tract infections
All ages are welcome. You don't need to be a SHC patient.

Emergency Services

Call 911 in case of a medical emergency. Or, come immediately to the Emergency Room if you experience any of the following conditions:

  • Bleeding
  • Broken Bones
  • Chest pain
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Poisoning
  • Seizures
  • Severe burns
  • Severe pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sudden paralysis or slurred speech
  • Suspected overdose of medication

Our ER offers the latest technology plus two fully equipped trauma rooms. Steps away, our doctors have access to the tri-states most advance medical imaging technology, including new in-house wide-bore MRI and new low dose CT machines.

 Whether it's urgent or an emergency, the most important thing is that you see a doctor when you need one. At Southwest Health Center, our Urgent Care is in our Emergency Deparment. So, if you come into Urgent Care, and it turns out to be an emergency situation, you're already in the ER--with highly experienced ER physicians--no ambulance needed.
