Immediate Care vs. Emergency Services

Immediate care involves the delivery of medical services to individuals in urgent need of treatment, but who are not experiencing a life-threatening condition. The emergency room is the best place to seek treatment for life-threatening injuries, illnesses, or conditions. Immediate care makes it possible to receive quality medical care quickly for other situations, such as stomach aches or minor cuts that require stitches. An advantage of immediate care is that prompt treatment is available without the long wait and higher expense often associated with the emergency room.
