What is the difference between an emergency room and an urgent care clinic?

An urgent care center deals with medical conditions that are concerning but not life threatening. Examples include:

  • Minor injuries such as sprains, minor cuts and burns
  • Common illnesses such as colds, flu, ear aches and sore throats
  • After-hours care

An emergency room treats more serious conditions such as:

  • Heart attack or chest pain
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sudden dizziness, weakness or blurred vision
  • Broken bones
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Severe burns
  • Drug overdose or poisoning

If needed, we can refer you to other Mercy facilities for further treatment, surgery or follow up. We’ll coordinate the services you need to ensure you receive the best care possible.
