What is considered an emergency?
Navigating the health care system can be confusing, especially when you are sick and just want to be treated. But different health concerns are best treated in specific locations. In fact, only the most serious illnesses and injuries should be seen at the Emergency Department. Most health concerns are best served at an Urgent Care Clinic or your family doctor’s office.
