Urgent Care vs. Emergency Room

It’s no secret that emergency rooms across the United States are overcrowded. Over the last 20 years, ER visits have increased roughly 30% nationwide. In fact, the majority of the nation’s ERs report that they are operating at capacity or over capacity. ER overcrowding can lead to reductions in the quality of patient care as well as an increase in the time it takes to treat patients. Approximately 27% of all ER visits nationwide are non-life threatening and could readily be addressed in an alternate venue of care that is much more cost-effective, such as AFC Urgent Care Center in West Orange NJ.

AFC Urgent Care West Orange is capable of providing high-quality treatment for non-life threatening injuries and illnesses, including:

  • Bone breaks and fractures
  • Back and joint pain
  • Muscle sprains and strains
  • Cuts and lacerations (requiring stitches)
  • Colds and flu-like symptoms
  • Stomachaches, vomiting, and diarrhea
  • Throat pain and coughs
  • Minor skin rashes and insect bites
  • Lab testing, including STD testing

In most cases, insured patients receive treatment for the cost of their standard health insurance co-pay for a specialist office visit. Uninsured patients can also be treated at an affordable cost that is much lower than the cost of an emergency room visit. Walk-in patients are welcome, but if you would like to ensure you’re seen as quickly as possible check in online!

If you are experiencing any of the following, call 9-1-1 or visit the nearest hospital emergency room as soon as possible:

  • Amputations
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Suspected heart attack or stroke
  • Knife or gun-shot wound
  • Drug overdose
  • Poisoning
  • Severe head, neck or back injury
  • Pregnancy – severe abdominal pain

AFC Urgent Care West Orange is open seven days a week with extended evening and weekend hours for your convenience. Call us at (973) 669-5900 or walk-in at 464 Eagle Rock Avenue, West Orange, NJ.

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room.
