Urgent Care

Emergency Department

We are proud to offer the area’s only dedicated, full-time team of board-certified Emergency Physicians in our Emergency Department. These are our own physicians, not contracted or part-time doctors.

Our highly experienced team of physicians — supported by an experienced professional team of nurses, physician assistants and other health care staff — are always here and we’re always ready when you need us most.

The Difference between Urgent Care and Emergency Services:

Emergency services and urgent care are provided by the same team of Southwest Health physicians, nurses and staff, so it’s important to understand the difference. A visit that begins in Urgent Care may become an Emergency Department visit after the physician completes the exam.
