Freestanding ER Services VS Limitations of Urgent Cares

Urgent care centers provide treatment to patients with less serious conditions when their primary care physician is unavailable. They are generally not equipped to handle major trauma, injuries, or conditions. They also typically do not have imaging or lab capabilities, which means that if your condition needs these services, you will be sent to an ER for more comprehensive care.

Our freestanding emergency rooms provide 24 hour emergency care and are staffed with highly trained medical professionals with the experience and equipment to treat medical concerns, emergencies and potentially life-threatening conditions. We have minimal wait times and always have a board certified emergency physician and nurses on duty for a superior ER experience.
