The cost difference alone should be enough to encourage people to go to urgent care centers. The average urgent care visits range from $50 to $150, depending on the patient’s co-pay and level of treatment, according to the American Academy of Urgent Care Medicine. Average emergency room costs vary wildly based on treatment, but a 2013 National Institute of Health study put the median cost at $1,233. Other estimates push it to as high as $2,168.
Then there is the time factor. Patients at urgent cares are seen on a first-come, first-serve basis with an average wait time of about 30 minutes. Compare this to being seen at an emergency room, where patients are seen based on the severity of the condition. Patients with life-threatening injuries go first. The average wait time in the ER is about 2 hours or more.
The Chester Urgent Care treats illnesses and injuries that require immediate, but not emergency care. Our medical staff can often fill a need that may exist between primary care physicians and hospital emergency rooms during times when a doctor’s appointment is not readily available.
When deciding between urgent care clinics and emergency rooms the question to answer is: “Are these life-threatening injuries or symptoms?”. If the answer is “Yes”, then the choice is simple: Go to an emergency room.
If the injuries and symptoms are non-life threatening, then an urgent care center should do.
Urgent Care Centers are NOT the correct choice for patients with shortness of breath, chest pain or a severe allergic reaction. Those patients should go directly to the Emergency Department. The wait time in a hospital emergency room can often be extremely long and you may often wait hours to receive treatment and care. The hospital emergency room does not necessarily treat the first patient in line. Care is typically based on the severity and nature of any given injury, which can be frustrating if you have a nonlife-threatening illness or injury.
Reasons to go to the Emergency Department:
- Severe chest pain
- Severe abdominal pain
- Intestinal bleeding
- Vaginal bleeding with pregnancy
- Repeated vomiting
- Severe head or eye injuries
