Emergency vs. Urgency

Ever wonder where the line between emergency and urgent care falls? Sometimes, it’s hard to tell. As a general rule of thumb, go to the Emergency Department (ED) when it seems life threatening, like a heart attack or poisoning. Go to the walk-in clinic when it is serious but not life threatening, and needs to be seen today, not tomorrow. Remember, call 911 if the situation seems immediately life threatening. Learn more
