Urgent Care vs. Emergency Care Services

While you should never take a chance with a medical emergency, not every condition that requires medical attention is a life-threatening emergency. There are several services that can be just as efficiently provided at an urgent care center.

At Jupiter Medical Center, we offer five convenient Urgent Care locations as a great cost-saving and time-saving alternative. Below are examples of issues that are best treated at an urgent care center:

  • Bladder infections
  • Coughs, congestion, or sinus problems
  • Mild fevers
  • Pink eye or other minor eye conditions
  • Sprains or minor injuries
  • Bug bites or small animal bites
  • Ear infections
  • Minor burns
  • Rashes
  • Throat pain

Whether you choose to be treated at one of our Urgent Care centers or in our world-class Emergency Department, rest assured that you will receive the highest quality of medical care.
