When to use convenience care, urgent care, or Emergency room

Minor health problems that need immediate attention after hours are best treated in urgent care or convenience care.  Convenience care can treat minor illnesses such as cold and flu symptoms, strep throat, bladder infection. Service is generally faster and costs less than other settings. Urgent care can treat all the things treated at in convenience care, plus possible fractures and administer stitches. Urgent care will cost less than the emergency room and it’s usually faster too. Schedule an appointment with your doctor for ongoing care for chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes care.

Seek emergency treatment for:

  • Major injuries and burns
  • Chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Stomach pain (severe)
  • Bleeding you can’t stop
  • Allergic reaction (severe)
  • Pregnant women in labor
  • Poisoning

Call 911 or visit Westfields Hospital & Clinic if you need emergency care right away.

Urgent Care costs less than ER. The amount you’ll pay varies by insurance plan. However, emergency care generally costs a lot more than urgent care. An example of a typical copay for urgent care is $40-65 vs. $100-$150 for an Emergency Room visit.
