When possible, non-life threatening health conditions are best cared for at your primary care doctor’s office. If you’ve tried to see your doctor, but still need care after hours, Fort HealthCare Lake Mills Urgent Care is an option for you. Visit FortHealthCare.com/UrgentCare to learn more.
Fort HealthCare is committed to making sure our communities stay safe and healthy. To provide the best care possible, it is important for individuals to know when to access a primary care physician’s office, an urgent care clinic, or an emergency room. Depending upon the condition or injury, accessing the correct facility for treatment can save you money – but more
importantly - can save time, which is a very critical factor in an emergency.
Urgent care centers are designed to complement a primary care doctor’s office by providing a place to treat minor injuries and illnesses often seen at a doctor’s office, but cannot wait until the office is open. Urgent care services are considered to be extended clinic hours, where one can come with urgent care needs without an appointment. It is appropriate to go to an urgent care setting if you or a family member experience:
- A sprain or strain
- Minor cuts
- Minor burns
- Eye infections
- Cold and flu-like symptoms that haven’t improved
It is appropriate to call an ambulance or seek emergency care for:
- Persistent vomiting and diarrhea
- A fever above 102 degrees
- Severe pain
- Head trauma with loss of consciousness
- Chest pain
- Difficulty breathing
