When to Use ER vs. Urgent Care

  • Urgent Care

    If you need care fast and your PCP is unavailable, try a network urgent care center, which will be faster and less expensive than the ER.

    An urgent care center is prepared to treat things like:

    • Sore throats
    • Rashes
    • Sprains
    • Strains
    • Small cuts
    • Minor infections
    • Minor broken bones (e.g., finger)
  • Emergency & Urgent Care Centers

    Centura Health is proud to bring a new and improved way to access urgent and emergency care to a neighborhood near you.

    This level of care offers urgent and emergency services in one location, eliminating the guesswork of where to go. Upon arrival, you will be evaluated to determine the level of care needed, and the amount you pay is based on the services you receive.

    Visit an Emergency and Urgent Care Center for:

    • Abdominal pain
    • Fever, flu, nausea
    • Sports injuries
    • Head injury
    • True emergencies
  • Emergency Rooms

    If you have a medical or life-threatening or limb-threatening emergency dial 911 immediately. 

    Seek immediate attention at an ER for:

    • Chest pain
    • Sudden weakness or trouble talking
    • Difficulty breathing
    • Spinal injuries
    • Severe head injury
    • Major broken bones
    • Major burns
    • Sudden change in vision
    • Heavy bleeding
    • Large open wounds

*How We Calculate Your ER or Urgent Care Wait—Centura Health ER and urgent care wait times represent a six-hour rolling average, updated every 15 minutes. Wait times are defined as the time between when you check in at the front desk until the time you’re greeted by a qualified, assigned medical professional. Patients are triaged at arrival and seen in priority order based on presenting complaints and reason for visit. A qualified medical professional is defined as a Doctor of Medicine (MD), a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO), a Physician Assistant (PA) or an Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP).
