Get the

Right Care

at the Right Place

Knowing where to go for medical care can help you get the right care at the right time. Primary care, urgent care, and the emergency room each serve different purposes, and understanding the differences between them can help you make informed decisions about where to go for care. If you're still unsure about where to go, consult with your primary care provider for guidance.

Know Where to Go
Primary Care
Your primary care physician knows you, your medications and conditions, and has your medical records on hand. It is the best place to receive non-emergency care.
Urgent care centers provide medical care for conditions that require immediate attention but are not life-threatening. You should visit an urgent care center for illnesses or injuries that can't wait for a primary care appointment. Urgent care centers are equipped to handle a range of conditions, including broken bones, sprains, infections, and minor cuts.
An emergency room (ER) provides medical care for life-threatening conditions. You should go to the ER if you have a medical emergency, such as a heart attack, stroke, severe bleeding, or difficulty breathing.
For life threatening injuries Call 911.
