In An Emergency

Take immediate action.

  • Call 911 or go directly to the nearest emergency room or Urgent Care Clinic.

An emergency is a sudden, serious and unexpected acute illness, injury or condition (including sudden and unexpected severe pain) that you reasonably perceive could permanently endanger your health if medical treatment is not received immediately. Referrals are not required for emergency care or treatment at an Urgent Care clinic.
