Care when you can't wait to see your provider

Urgent Care

If you feel you have a serious, life-threatening illness or injury that requires immediate medical care, CALL 911 or go to the nearest hospital.

Emergency or Urgent Care?

You should go directly to the Emergency Department anytime you think you or someone else could be significantly harmed or die unless medical care is given immediately—that’s an emergency.

While some signs might seem to be obvious emergencies, at other times a life-threatening situation isn’t so apparent. Experts say it’s best to err on the side of caution and seek emergency medical help if you’re unsure.

If you aren’t in need of emergency care, CMH Urgent Care is the better choice because:

  • A visit to CMH Urgent Care costs less than a visit to the Emergency Department.
  • You will have a shorter wait time.
  • If you live in or near Warrenton, you can receive care closer to home.
  • CMH Urgent Care providers work closely with the physicians in the Emergency Department to transfer care, if necessary.
