What Can I Expect When I Visit?

Often the wait is shorter in an immediate care facility than in a hospital emergency department. However, even in an immediate care facility, there may be patients who come in with such severe symptoms that they need to be seen ahead of less urgent cases, which may require you to wait a little longer.

Our immediate care staff includes board-certified physicians (always on-site), physician assistants (PAs) and advanced practice nurses (APNs). Our team is certified in advanced cardiac life support (ACLS) and pediatric advanced life support (PALS).

A hospital emergency department is the right choice for potentially life-threatening conditions such as chest pains, head injuries, abdominal pain or severe bleeding. Always call 9-1-1 for life-threatening emergencies.

What Should I Bring?

It is important to bring the following items with you when visiting one of our Immediate Care Centers:

  • A copy of your most recent insurance card (insurance coverage varies, so please check with your carrier about coverage for immediate care)
  • Driver’s license or state-issued photo ID
  • Names and dosages of any prescription or over-the-counter medications you are currently taking
