Urgent Care Vs ER in Pittsburgh, PA


It is important to understand the difference between the medical care provided at an urgent care center or the hospital emergency room. Choosing the correct place to receive medical treatment can save you significant amounts of time and money. Even more importantly, choosing the correct medical provider can help ensure that you receive the necessary care needed for your medical condition.

Urgent care is a great choice for any condition that requires prompt attention but does not pose an immediate, serious threat to your health or life. If your medical issue is life threatening, immediately call 911 or go directly to a hospital emergency room.

Because AFC Urgent Care is committed to the health of all of our patients we have created the following guide to help you determine where to seek treatment for your injury or illness.
