By definition, an emergency is “a serious situation or occurrence that happens unexpectedly and demands immediate action.”
That’s why the Emergency Department at Memorial Medical Center 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.
Call 9-1-1 or go to the ER immediately if you experience any of the following emergency symptoms:
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
Change in mental state
Weakness on one side/garbled speech/ facial droop
High fever/fever with a rash
Severe or repeated vomiting
