By definition, an emergency is “a serious situation or occurrence that happens unexpectedly and demands immediate action.”
That’s why the Emergency Department at Marshfield Medical Center-Neillsville is always open to meet your family’s healthcare needs. Our 100% board-certified physicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year.
Conditions such as fever, strep throat, or ear infections do not require emergency care. These types of illness can be treated by our great urgent care team 24/7.
Visit Urgent Care rather than Emergency Care for the following symptoms:
Urinary tract infections
Pink eye, or conjunctivitis
Rashes without a fever, like insect bites/poison ivy
Urgent care is located in the emergency room area. Your urgent care visit is charged less than an ER visit but more than a clinic visit.

Deep cuts/bleeding that will not stop
Spinal cord or back injury
Severe eye injuries
Shortness of breath
Fainting/loss of consciousness/change in your vision
