ER or Urgent Care Center?

Sometimes it is difficult to know whether you should go to an Emergency Room or Urgent Care Center. You should use a hospital's emergency department for very serious or life-threatening problems. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, do not wait! Call 911 or get to the nearest hospital emergency room:

  • Chest pain
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Sudden dizziness, weakness or loss of coordination or balance
  • Sudden blurred vision
  • Numbness in the face, arm or leg
  • Sudden, severe headache
  • Deep cuts or bleeding that will not stop
  • Coughing up or vomiting blood
  • Severe burns
  • Seizures

For less serious health concerns, visit one of our affiliated Doctors on Duty or Urgent Care Centers. Locations listed here.
