Healthcare Providers Urging People to Seek Urgent Care Centers

Many healthcare centers are asking people with minor injuries to seek medical treatment at urgent care facilities. Urgent care facilities have begun popping up around the St. Louis region as a less expensive way to handle injuries that aren't serious. Urgent care facilities offer those without health insurance access to physicians and nurses at a significantly reduced rate compare to emergency room visits. Hospitals around the St. Louis region have been creating and funding urgent care centers to alleviate emergency rooms. These urgent care centers give people who might not otherwise go to the hospital because of the expense of emergency room visits a reason to seek medical treatment for minor conditions. What physicians know is that minor medical problems can develop into serious medical emergencies if not treated. Therefore, it benefits the patient to seek out medical care that is affordable.
