Please keep in mind that this service should be used only for urgent clinical matters that cannot wait until the next business day.
If you feel that your child has a life-threatening emergency (for example, he/she is unconscious, having a seizure, bleeding profusely, has severe difficulty breathing, has suffered severe burns or injuries, etc.), it is most appropriate to call 911 immediately instead of our emergency answering service.
Urgent Care Centers are an excellent alternative to the Emergency Room. They are used to treat patients who have an injury or illness that requires immediate care but isn’t serious enough to warrant a visit to the hospital Emergency Room.
Urgent care centers can be used for non-emergency visits that cannot wait until the next day. If you need guidance in deciding whether your child’s condition can wait to the following day or warrants a visit to the urgent care center or Emergency Room, please call our answering service as above.
