What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a type of health service focused on bridging the gap between a routinely scheduled office visit and a trip to the emergency room (ER). It’s a great option for health issues that need prompt attention but don’t rise to the level of a true emergency. 

Access to urgent care allows you to meet your health needs in a way that is affordable and accessible. While most people don’t require frequent urgent care visits, knowing these services are available can bring significant peace of mind.  


What kinds of issues can be treated in urgent care?

Memorial Health Urgent Care and Infusions can address numerous health needs. Some of the issues that bring people into the practice for urgent care treatment include:

  • Ear infections
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Mild dehydration
  • Diarrhea and constipation
  • Gastroenteritis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Foreign body removal
  • Eye health issues
  • Sore or strep throat
  • Minor abdominal pain
  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies and sinus pain
  • Cold and flu
  • Cerumen (ear wax) removal
  • Rectal bleeding from hemorrhoids

You can also get help for mono, nosebleeds, and minor cuts and burns.These are just some of the health needs that can be met during an urgent care visit. Many other conditions can also be addressed in urgent care.  


How do I know if urgent care is the right setting for my symptoms?

It isn’t always easy to know the best way to meet your health needs. One way to make the process easier is to consider whether your symptoms can wait to be addressed during a

normally scheduled office visit. If you’re in discomfort or don’t want to wait, urgent care is a good option. 

There are some issues that need to be treated in an emergency room setting. Emergency rooms are staffed with professionals trained in emergency medicine, and equipped with a wide range of equipment and technology. 

If any of the following issues arise, emergency room care should be your next step:

  • Loss of consciousness
  • Chest pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Uncontrolled bleeding
  • Clearly broken bones

If you’re unsure where to turn for urgent care, feel free to call Memorial Health Urgent Care and Infusions for guidance. Walk-in visits are an option for time-sensitive needs, and online booking is always available.
