When health concerns arise, it is best to contact your primary care provider, who can then direct you on the best course of action. But when health issues arise after hours, on weekends or during the holidays, visiting your primary provider may not be an option. While not every illness or injury requires a trip to the emergency room (ER), there are times when emergency services are needed. Emergency rooms are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You should seek emergency care for limb- or life-threatening conditions, including intense chest pain, profuse bleeding, difficulty breathing, severe headaches, seizures lasting longer than five minutes, intense abdominal pain and other serious medical issues. For minor illnesses or injuries, Urgent/Express Care clinics are the best choice. Walk-in and Urgent/Express Care clinics are available after hours, on weekends and during holidays. Urgent/Express Care can provide treatment for non-emergency situations, including burns, colds, cuts, allergies, flu, fractures, infections, sprains and more. The care centers listed here are to help guide you in the event of an emergency. There may be facilities closer to your current location.
