What is an Urgent Care Clinic?
Urgent Care Clinics are dedicated to providing ambulatory care to patients in a medical facility outside of the traditional emergency room. Typically, Urgent Care Clinics treat injuries or illnesses that require immediate care but are not considered life-threatening. Urgent Care Clinics have a smaller scope of services they can offer than traditional emergency rooms, but are able to offer more services than Walk-in Clinics.
The benefits of choosing an Urgent Care Clinic rather than an emergency room are shorter wait times and less expensive services. According to SolvHealth.com, the average visit to an Urgent Care Clinic costs between $100 and $200, while visits to the emergency room typically cost over $500. Urgent Care Clinics are also designed to reduce the burden on emergency rooms, so that doctors can focus on treating illnesses or injuries that are life-threatening, while those with injuries or illnesses that are not life-threatening can still receive the proper care they require from trusted medical professionals. Urgent Care Clinics operate on a first come, first served basis, but wait times for Urgent Care Clinics have been proven to be significantly shorter than those in emergency rooms.
Should I Go to an Urgent Care Clinic?
If your injury or illness is urgent but not considered life-threatening, and you are unable to make an immediate appointment with your regular family doctor, an Urgent Care Clinic is likely the best option for you.
However, if you are suffering from a life-threatening injury or illness, it is imperative that you immediately go to your nearest emergency room.
