Urgent Care

What is urgent care?

Urgent care is a specialty medical service that offers outpatient diagnosis and treatment for acute illness and injuries requiring immediate attention. It’s an alternative to the hospital emergency room for urgent matters that aren’t life-threatening. You can also use urgent care to see a doctor outside of normal office hours. 

Midwest Regional Health Services offers extended weekday hours and Saturday hours to accommodate urgent care needs. Physicians providing urgent care services require extensive medical knowledge, which the experienced, board-certified medical team possesses and uses to treat their patients for both urgent and primary care needs.

When should I visit an urgent care clinic?

You should see the team at Midwest Regional Health Services for urgent care whenever your illness or injury requires immediate attention or has the potential for further disability or death if treatment is delayed longer than 24 hours. Urgent care conditions may include:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Asthma attacks
  • Hives
  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Pneumonia 
  • Sprains and strains
  • Lacerations
  • Abscesses
  • Vomiting

If you’re experiencing pain or urgent symptoms, visit Midwest Regional Health Services for immediate attention. For nonurgent health concerns, use the online scheduling tool or call the practice for an appointment.

When should I go to the ER instead of urgent care?

Understanding where to go for treatment is essential in receiving immediate care. While the urgent care services at Midwest Regional Health Services offer immediate treatment for a wide range of conditions, it is best to visit the hospital emergency room for any of the following serious conditions:

  • Chest pain radiating to arm or jaw
  • Severe heart palpitations
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Sudden difficulty speaking or understanding speech
  • Severe, sudden headache
  • Weakness on one side of body
  • Newborn babies under 4 months old with fevers
  • Deep lacerations, especially of the face
  • Head injuries with loss of consciousness
  • Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
  • Severe burns
  • Seizures
  • Injuries with excessive, uncontrolled bleeding

The hospital emergency room is the best place for receiving treatment for any life or death emergencies. For all other urgent care, we welcome you to Midwest Regional Health Services during open hours for immediate treatment without an appointment.
