Is Urgent Care the Same as the Emergency Room?
Get the best care for you by choosing the right place to go:
- Call 911 or go to an emergency room for serious, life-threatening illness or injury to you or your unborn baby.
- Go to an urgent care walk-in clinic if you need quick care for a common illness or minor injury, but your primary care provider is not available.
