Emergency Room or MD360 Convient Care?

[col_1_2]

When to Visit MD360

When you need immediate medical attention, it is important to go to a facility that can provide the appropriate level of care. If you have a minor illness or injury, going to the Emergency room can be inefficient and delay the treatment of others with more serious medical conditions. On the other hand, serious illness and injury must be evaluated in a hospital emergency room where immediate, in-depth testing and evaluation are available. download flyer

One of the best ways to determine your medical needs is to contact your own primary care doctor. If you do not have a family physician, GHS has a large network of primary care physicians at whosyourdoctor.org.

Your physician will have more knowledge of your medical history and problems to make the best recommendation for further evaluation. If you don’t have a family physician to help you determine the best place to seek care, consider the following guidelines outlined at the right.

If you believe you are having a heart attack, stroke or other health emergency, call 911 immediately.
