Emergency and Urgent Care
In a life-threatening emergency, call 911 or your local emergency number. If you are unable to do so, ask someone to call for you or to take you to the nearest emergency care facility. You may go to any hospital in your area for emergency care. Use emergency care for sudden, unexpected medical conditions that, in the reasonable judgment of a prudent layperson, would endanger a person's life or seriously harm the person's health if not treated immediately.
Urgent care is for conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate, serious threat to your health or life.
