Urgent Care or Emergency Room?
Do you or your loved ones need immediate attention for an illness or injury—or can you wait to see your regular doctor tomorrow? If you’re unsure, start with urgent care. Once they determine the severity of your condition, they’ll arrange for emergency care, if needed.
Also called acute care, ready care, quick care, walk-in clinic and other names, urgent care clinics remain open past normal business hours and:
- Offer medical care for non-life-threatening conditions such as sore throat, ear infection, minor injury, muscle sprain or strain and more
- Provide staffing by physicians, physician assistants (PAs) or certified nurse practitioners (CNPs)
- May offer X-ray and laboratory services on site
For health conditions when you typically see your regular doctor, choose urgent care after business hours. But remember—urgent care is not a substitute for your primary care provider. These locations don’t offer routine immunizations, wellness check-ups, medication refills, assistance filling out forms for chronic conditions, advanced imaging such as CT or MRI scans, intravenous (IV) fluids or critical care for heart attack, stroke or major trauma.
See an Avera provider within minutes from the comfort of your home with the AveraNow app for your smartphone, tablet or computer. Or visit an AveraNow clinic at selected Hy-Vee locations in Sioux Falls, SD.
For life-threatening health problems or something you feel needs immediate attention, choose the hospital emergency room nearest you.
