4 Benefits of an Emergency and Urgent Care Hybrid Model

People deserve to have essential health care when they need it. But sometimes, it can be hard for people to even determine the kind or urgency of care they need. Individuals often visit the emergency room for illnesses and injuries that don’t require emergency treatment. Or, they delay care with their primary care provider due to scheduling conflicts.

Urgent care centers are a convenient and widely accessible option for obtaining medical treatment. They offer care at a level that is between a doctor’s office and emergency room, providing urgent but non-emergent medical care. While primary care providers are best suited for non-emergent care, urgent care centers can help with increase access for those without a regular provider or when their provider can’t get them scheduled soon enough.

Why You Should Visit an Urgent Care Center

ProMedica’s combined emergency room and urgent care is a hybrid model that takes the guesswork out of determining what kind of care you need. We evaluate you and decide whether you should receive emergent or non-emergent treatment. This means that under one roof, your level of care is determined based on your health needs; you’re then billed according to the treatment you get.

But these are not the only benefits you’ll receive when visiting an urgent care clinic. Here are four beneficial reasons for visiting our combined ER and urgent care location:

  1. Shorter Wait Times

When you or your loved one isn’t feeling well, you want to get in, get seen and get on the road to recovery as quickly as possible. Our combined ER and urgent care has been designed to minimize the amount of time you are with us from door to door – oftentimes to less than 45 minutes. And, because every patient is assessed by an ER-trained doctor, our model ensures you get the quality care you want, need and deserve.

  1. Cost-Effective Treatment

Who doesn’t love a reasonable price on a quality product or service? That’s precisely what you get when you go to an urgent care visit. Just because something is cost-effective doesn't mean the quality is sacrificed, especially in health care. At ProMedica’s combined ER and urgent care, we provide medical care to meet your need. All our patients are seen by an ER-trained physician who assesses your personal needs and determines whether you need ER or urgent care. That means that you’ll get the right level of care you need and be billed only for the care you receive.

  1. Non-Emergent and Emergent Treatment Options

Whether the medical care you need is an emergency or non-emergency, you'll receive value-based treatment at our combined ER and urgent care facility. We’re determined to bridge the gap between health, affordability and quality care because every patient deserves medical care access, whether it’s an emergency or non-emergency. Once we determine the level of treatment you need, you have access to ER-trained physicians and staff to administer medical care as necessary.

Our unique model's goal is to redefine what it means to receive health care and transform the industry so that patients have access to everything under one roof.

  1. Never Wait to Schedule, No Appointments Needed

Regular, routine check-ups and communications with your primary care physician are very important to your health and well-being. However, sometimes you need care when your doctor’s office is closed or an emergency situation presents itself. That’s when a trip to our 24-hour ER and urgent care facility is not only convenient but also important to ensure your condition doesn’t worsen. No appointments are necessary. Just walk in and get the care you need when you need it.
